another new bee
« on: May 22, 2008, 11:08:41 AM »
Hello from Talladega Alabama. I have been lurking around this site for a while now learning a lot from y'all. I finely signed up last week but only now got around to posting something. Thanks for answering dozens of questions I would not have known to ask. I've had two hives for about a week now and they seem to be doing great. The hardest thing so far is resisting the temptation to "look in" on them daily.

LOL Why resist the  urge? Now is the time to check it out. Later on it won't be near as thrilling as the first few times, I go in every other day just to check and see what there doing. Course it mighn't be a good thing but the bees don't seem to mind at all.  I have only had hives for a month. Really exiting time for me!!

Congrats alflyguy!  Looking is the best way to learn.  And welcome to beemaster and the beekeeping world.  Beekeeping is a wonderful experience and a great way to learn (and not only about bees).

I won't let grass grow under my feet, there will be plenty of time to push up daisies.

Aflyguy.  Welcome to our forum, you already know that you have found the best place to learn, ask questions, they will get you help that you will need, we are a friendly group and love to help.  Looking in the colony is really good for you to get a handle on what is going on inside.  This is important that you understand and get to know the antics of your bees, and you will see there are many.  Welcome to this wonderful world of the honeybee, you will soon be under their spell, as we all are too.  Here you will make new friends, have a place to tell your experiences where people care and are always interested.   Have that most wonderful and awesomely beautiful day, Cindi
