Welcome to the forums!
You've come to the right place for bees stuff! Most all Ive learned has been from here, but definitely keep up with reading bee books :)
Oh yeh,...when you do "Get it figured out" please let us all know!..The more i figure out, the more I find I know less...Strange how it works that way for me!
And, welcome to a hobby that will change how you see every thing around you! You will be so surprised after just 6 months of reading about bees, how different the world really is around you!
Then,.....The bees hum...............
I tell people the bees tell me secrets...They think I'm a little nutty......Mostly, they tell me about the weather :)...But they also tell you about people, and the environment, and how God see things!
...You'll see.......They'll whisper things in your ears....I'm not sure how it happens, but it does.
Well, have fun learning and be patient,....spring is just 6 months away!
