Thanks for allowing me to join.

I want a hive of bees on our ranch to help nature and maybe get a little honey now and then. Hopefully replace  some of the CCD loss with assistance from this forum. cool

Hello and Welcome!

This forum is a good place to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Be sure to check out the tutorials on the main Beemaster page ("Backyard Beekeeping Course"). Check your local library for books/videos on beekeeping. Buy some beginner's books. Read, read, read.  There are many excellent online sites. Two that I often recommend:
Natural Beekeeping:
http://www.bushfarms.com/bees.htm
100 Online lessons:
http://basicbeekeeping.blogspot.com/

Lastly, get involved with a local club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers:
