Hello from Georgia
« on: February 17, 2008, 08:28:39 PM »
For the past 2 years, I've been fascinated by honey bees and so this March I'm starting two hives. I've read a few books and have done some research on the internet. I have never worked with or been around honey bees.  We have a few apiaries in my town and so I'm going to hang out with a beekeeper next weekend to see how he works his bees. Also, I'm interested in organic beekeeping. Anyway, I'm very excited and any tips or suggestions would be very helpful!

Welcome Ashlee!
I'm new too, just ordered my bees a couple of weeks ago.  This forum is great, you get answers to questions you didn't know to ask yet!  You will see that there are soooo many ways to do the same thing. The experience of many who have been before is amazing, hopefully I won't make some of the mistakes I might have!

Ashlee, welcome to our forum.  Yep, you found the right place to do lots of learnin'.  Your questions will always get great answers and will help you along with your understanding of how to keep bees.  Lots to learn, you will love this fascinating world of the honeybee and you will have the time of your life.  Welcome, have a wonderful and awesome day, love our life we live.  Cindi
