Allen,welcome to our forum, great you found us.  Your anticipation of getting honeybees is nothing to how you will feel when you delve deeply into their secret little world, soon you will also know how they have the power to hold us deeply beneath their spell.  Good that you are studying and learning about them as you are.  Our forum will be a great source of knowledge gain, a place where you will meet new friends, a place to lean on others for the mountains of questions that you will want to ask, and ask, all questions are wonderful and good.  That is how we learn and we love to help.  Stick around, we love new members.  Have that most awesome of days, with that same health, love and peace, Cindi

Hello and Welcome!

I need to find beekeepers in my area...
A local beekeeping club is a great resource. Clubs are good places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers. Looks like there's one near you:

Lickskillet, Toadvine, I love the names....  Here in Iowa we have exciting names like Central City.  The only interesting one I know of so far is Whatcheer.

Welcome to the forum.  Don't know how you are planning to get your bees, but if you are going for a package, don't wait past January, they tend to sell out in advance by quite a bit.  If you are getting a local nuc, still a good idea if you can line some up early.

Good luck, and remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question!  Run things past people here on the forum, we are happy to help and you can avoid some of the pitfalls.  I know it seems that I have managed to make about every stupid mistake possible at times.  And I did lots of reading beforehand.
