Hello and welcome!
I think you'll find this forum a great place to learn about bees. Here are a few of my standard comments to newbees:
1) Update your profile to include your location. When you post questions, if we can see your location we can often give you a much better answer.
2) The 'search' function is great if you're impatient like me. Many questions have been discussed at length previously, and instead of waiting for an answer you can often find an answer in a few moments.
3) Get connected with a local beekeeping club. Ohio has some great clubs! I keep telling myself I'm going to come over to the Tri-Counties meeting in Wooster some March, and I just read in Bee Culture about a meeting in Medina that's coming up in May. As much as I've learned online, nothing beats knowing some local beeks that can help you out from time to time.http://www.ohiostatebeekeepers.org/Regional%20%26%20County%20Clubs/countyclubs.html
