Hi there... I'm here mostly because my 13-year-old daughter wants to learn how to keep bees, and I know absolutely nothing about it.
Hello and welcome!
This is a great forum to learn about bees and beekeeping. Take some time and go thru the tutorials on the main Beemaster page, that's one of the places I began learning about beekeeping several years ago.
Also, tell us where you are. Maybe we can help get you connected with a local beekeeping club, or a nearby beekeeper. Clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes, and are another good place to learn about bees. I'm sure there would be someone who would enjoy giving you and your daughter an "up close and personal" demonstration. I had a Mom talk to me this spring saying her kids were interested in bees so I had them come over... here are a few pictures:http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,15282.0.html
