Buddy93, welcome to our forum, so glad that you found us.  Your excitement that you feel now about getting your bees is nothing compared to what it will be like when you really get them, and learn to love them, you will be captive under their spell, we all are.  You will have lots of questions, and anytime that you need one answered, call on your new forum friends, we will all be here to help you out as much or as little as your heart desires.  Welcome, have that beautiful and most wonderful day, Cindi

Hello and Welcome!

First, please update your profile to include your location. We probably won't remember you're from PA once you start posting questions, and since much of beekeeping is "location-specific", if your location is visible we'll be able to provide better answers.

Second, are you connected with a beekeeping club? Many local groups offer beginning beekeeping classes, and they are great places to find mentors and nearby beeks who can help familiarize you with how to keep bees in your area. It looks like there might be some clubs in neighboring counties:
http://www.pastatebeekeepers.org/Reports/Map/2007%20Contacts%20and%20Inspectors.html

Third, I use the forum 'search' function a lot. Very often I find that my question has been asked previously, and I can get an immediate answer. Very helpful.
