Thanks for the welcome. Unfortunately, it's difficult for me to learn by reading. I think I need to find someone who will let me help out in their bee yard once in awhile and show me how to do things. I also find it difficult that there are so many different opinions on topics! My head starts spinning!
MisfryedOhio. I know that feeling of the head swimming. I remember when I took my first courses in beekeeping, I would be so drained after two hours, in the evenings, once a week, that I thought I would never think again. There will be a time when you won't have this swimming head, honestly. There is so much to learn, but you will become more relaxed, the more you know. There will always be so many different answers to a single question. That will never change, every beekeeper has a slightly different response to a question. You have to learn to compile these answers and pick the best one that suits you, most answers will always be right in one way or another, just another beekeeper's way of looking at it. Good luck, it will become more easy. Do you have a good beekeeping book to help you out too? Have a great and wonderful day, Cindi
