Welcome, and my condolences! You will now be forced to sell everything you own to fuel your need for bees. I speak from experience. It is the only peace I find, mainly because, as mentioned earlier, no one wants to bother you while your around your hives. We have lawn furniture dedicated solely to bee-watching, and yes the neighbors, family, and friends think we are nuts. (But then again, aren't we all nuts in our own little ways?) Soon you will be driving around, searching out others' beehives. (I can spot a hive at 100 yards while driving at highway speeds.) Enjoy your new endeavor and may it add many happy years to your lives!
