Hi, I'm a beginner beekeeper, and I use the term beekeeper loosely, as I'm yet to establish a hive. But I've been doing alotta reading and youtubing getting ready for it. I actually had a hive about 15 years ago, but they left me hi and dri. Then my wife and I started having children, and I just didn't have time for the bees. Now my youngest (luke 11) has shown some interest in bees, and that's all I needed to try it again!

I just finished building a hive(2 supers) and finished 21 frames..foundation is in the mail along with Luke's bee hat! I can't wait for someone to call me about a swarm. I've been telling everyone that's I'd be happy to take care of any swarms for them....time will tell..I hope I have everything I'll need in the truck

I'm from Mississippi..anyone else nearby?

Yeah just let me know, I love taking people to the sims to see their reaction. Very life like, I went up in a T-6 and got to fly it and it felt just like the sim. Just let me know for real and Ill bring you any time! Oh and of course the bee yard!
