I am new to bee keeping, although not to insects or exotics. I currently keep a variety of pythons( my second clutch of woma pythons is pipping their egg today!!!!
) and lizards. I also raise various insects for use as feeders and I have a small collection of tarantulas.
I am leaning bee keeping from a person here in Arizona that has done it for almost 35 years.
I am 31 as of June. I have heard of the problems affecting the bees ( colony collapse) for over 2 years now on various talk shows. It was to my great surprise to stumble on my teacher while I was centipede hunting one day in june! We become instant friends and I look forward to having my own hives possibly ready to winter this summer ( he dose swarm removal and I will be assisting to acquire a few swarms for re queening) .
I think I will be doing this the rest of my life!
and have a happy July 4th
