welcome to beekeeping!  you'll find it addicting.

you'll want to put your location in your profile.  it will help when you have questions that require local answers.
.....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.....

Hello, and welcome to your new addiction!

You'll find this forum to be a good resource for learning more about bees & beekeeping. Be sure to check out the tutorials on the main Beemaster page.

I also recommend getting involved in a local club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected with nearby beekeepers.

Don't know. Try the email or call the phone number listed for them on the State site.

Hi, I'm in East Peoria.  The HIBA website isn't very good IMHO but we are an active club.
