Anyhow, thanks for the site and all the great info . . . it's perfect for someone like me who's too much of an introvert to actualy get out there and join a club, but obviously needs the info!!!
Hello and Welcome!
I'm an introvert as well, but let me encourage you to join a club anyway. While this is a great forum for learning about bees, there is a lot of "local knowledge" that you can learn as part of a bee club (local suppliers; who to call in a "bee emergency"; who has an extractor you can borrow, etc). There are benefits to knowing nearby beeks, plus, maybe find a mentor or two. One thing I've learned is that if the ONLY thing you have in common with someone is beekeeping, you'll still have more than enough to talk about! In fact, most beekeepers love to talk about bees, so you can just listen and learn a great deal.http://www.gabeekeeping.com/local_clubs.htm
