Hello!
I guess I should intorduce myself....

My name ia Anna, and I am in Northern California. By trade, I am a taxidermist, and I work part time in an office sitting behind a computer. The only good part about that is it gives me the time to sit online and read a lot.

Been facinated with bees since I was in 4-H many many years ago, had a friend who did beekeeping with his dad. Well, about 25 years later, I am giving it a go. I have been reading, researching, and buying all my equipment and stuff over the last 6 months. I am ready to put it all together and get the bees themselves. I am so glad to find this site, I have much to learn. Hope to meet some great people and get all the info you can give!

what a great trade!  if you go into your profile, you can put your location, etc.  this will help people give you more area specific answers to your questions.  you'll also get a better idea about other beekeepers in your area.

as soon as you have enough posts to be able to post pictures, i want to see some pics of your work!

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Thank, everybody. I cant wait to get started with my first colony. Have ordered all my equipment, some here and there. Everything needs to be put together. I have found a few places, all within an hour or so from me, that sell the bees themselves. Really want to do the comb honey, and have the Ross Rounds all set up. Not looking foward to getting stung, though... Wink

Yeah, I love my taxidermy. Not too many of us, women in Claifornia who like to "play" with dead things... guess thats why I am still single. grin I just won several awards at my state taxidermy show two weeks ago, and may travel to Oregon to show in their state competition.

I also raise lots of animals, horses, exotic pheasants, quail, and even fallow deer. Bees will fit right in there....

Anna, welcome to the forum. You are an interesting lady and I can't wait to get to know you better.
I can't imagine why you are still single either, you must get all kinds of hunters coming in to have their trophies stuffed. Maybe you are shy or not picking up on their signals Wink
So, gotta get those bees since you are all ready.
I did the same as you, researched for over a year and started getting my equipment last year and just got my first bees last week.
Its good to take your time and feel prepared.
You will find so much information here that you won't have to worry about not knowing anything about anything to do with bees.
The folks here are the nicest around.
Please order your bees right away so that you don't miss out. Places sell out early and I would really hate for you to be disappointed.
