Howdy. I am a wanna be beekeeper and have been getting books from the library about beekeeping and researching about it on the internet. My main reasons for wanting to beekeep is because I love nature and wildlife and also would like to enjoy some honey. We have only 14 acres of land but it has lots of wild flowers growing everywhere, especially goldenrod which I hear is what bees really like and I see lots of bees on the goldenrod. So Im hoping once I get the money saved up to get started that my bees will be happy and content here. I hope to learn a lot from this forum and yall.  :)90

If it does not harm the bees I would also like to use some of their beeswax for making my own herbal salves and so on.

BJ, good, you didn't go away, hee, hee.  You just wait, you say you are a wannabe beekeeper, you ain't seen nothing yet, just wait until you get some bees, you will become an addict.  Welcome, this is the best place to spend some great, quality time, learning and telling us of your experiences with the bees.  We love new forum members.  Have a great and best of day.  Cindi

welcome! you might want to look into the topbar hive, you get a good amount of wax out of this hive and get some honey, not like 200lbs from a langstroth hive. maybe 50 to 90 lbs? §¤«£¿æ.com talks all about them...
