I'm new to the forum, and about to be new to honeybees. I have wanted to get them for several years and for whatever reason put it off. I have even gone ahead and pulled the plug so to speak but it was too late to get them. Well, I have 2 packages coming this spring, have been assembling hives and painting and reading and talking with people and generally becoming more and more confused. Hopefully this forum will help me along in my endeavor.
PS.....I chose my screen name because I am a Rottweiler lover. I have owned them for the past 30 years, currently have one male, going on 4 years old. (Boy, I hate to see him get "old".) Anyway, maybe he and the bees will get along. I know he love's honey!!
