HI, well im in central Michigan, I am starting bee keeping this year. I already have the hives on order and bee packages , on there way. I found a local bee keeper to help and mentor me along the way. I do have a hundred questions tho. LOL but first I'll look and see what is already here for the searcher. My bees are Italian wide banded variety.

MustBeNuts. a Welcome to our forums, JP already told you that you would get a warm welcome and here it comes.  Yes, I am still on a wonderful and short vacation, but now and then get a moment to get online.  You have told us a little bit about yourself, when you have some time, tell us more, we love to hear about the experiences of new beekeepers, ones that are beginning to keep bees, and ones that are just thinking about it.  Once you really get into the bees, you will find in a very short time that you are under that spell, that spell of the honeybee, you will be held captive and you will become a bee addict.

Welcome, enjoy your stay with us, it is a great place to ask all your questions, they will all get great answers, and never consider that any question is dumb.  We were all in that learning process once upon a time.  Enjoy your stay, looking forward to hearing of your experiences, ask your questions, tell us about you too, as I said before.  Have a most beautiful and wonderful day, love this life we live.  Cindi
