Hillbillenigma, Welcome to the forums!
Dont think Michael Bush is bragging on his site. Well, actually, if he is bragging, he deserves to brag, because, truly, His site is the best bee site that I know of! His site pretty much covers everything about bees, this side of splicing genes!!
Its very easy to get around in!
I even print out page after page of stuff from his site while I'm at work and read it when I get the chances....Some stuff, like splitting hives, capturing swarms,and some other stuff i read over and over!
I like "Beekeeping for Dummies" also. I've found that when I was reading other bee books at first i didnt understand alot of it. The "Dummy" book( As I've mentioned several times since last spring) helped me to understand what all the other books were talking about.
Good luck and Hope you get off to a good start keeping your bees!
