Hi Bones and Mrs. Bones :-D
Welcome to the most habit forming hobby that I have been involved in. It is really great. Once you set up your hive, it is like the love bee has stung you! :-D You really want to see their work, and you will be amazed at what they DO!! and the miracle products they produce, wax, honey, beebread, ect, from little tiny drops of nectar and pollen. They are simply (not simple) one of the most amazing of God's creatures. You know, I read once that have all the same emotions we do, except fear.
Mrs. Bones, give youself a little time and you will come to know that the bees are really not as aggressive (most of the time) as most people think. Always protect yourself, and I hope you will grow to love these little girls.
best wishes and success
