Hello there my name is DAve I am not a Beekeeper but have always been fascinated by insects esp Hymenoptera(ants,bees and wasps)! Recently I purchased the book: "Keeping Bees and making honey" by Alison Benjamin and Brian McCallum. Now I am even more interested and entertaining the idea of beekeeping when I buy my own home. I plan to have a very insect friendly garden and yard in the future. A couple years ago at a local fall festival there was a honey and wax candle and ect. stand talked to the Beekeeper a little learned a little about eating honey and pollen to reduce allergies, and tried different varieties that I have not heard of before Mine and my Wife's favorite was the Palmetto. During the Spring and Summer I love taking hikes around my area and taking pics of insects, I just love observing them...Ants thou will always be my favorite insect.
P.S. Have to run off to work now but will start posting some of my insect pics soon.
