Hello and welcome!

Glad you found us. This is a great forum for learning more about bees and beekeeping. You didn't tell us much about yourself. Do you have bees? How many colonies? How long? etc.

A few of my usual recommendations:
1) Update your profile to include your location. We won't remember you're in NC when you post, and since much of beekeeping is location specific, we'll be able to better answer your questions when your location is visible.
2) I use the 'search' function a lot. Very often I find that my question has been discussed previously and I can get an immediate answer.
3) Are you involved with a local beekeeping club? Clubs are great places to get connected with other local beeks, find mentors and learn more. Clubs often offer beekeeping classes that are focuses on beekeeping in your specific area.
