Name here is John, living out here in Mineola NY. Interested in beekeeping and joined the forum to gain some knowledge before I start shelling out my hard earned dollars. I plan on doing a lot of research over the winter and to also purchase some equipment whether new or used I don't know yet. I'm also looking for info as far as obtaining Nucs in the early spring to start a colony or two. Two is probably the most I can maintain on my property which is a 50x100 lot fenced in with a 6 foot fence not only for the bees but also for my 9 year old female Boxer named Dempsey and my 7 month old Great Dane male puppy Nitro who is currently pushing 135#'s.
If any of you could help to steer me in the right direction as far as keeping bees etc.... Pros and Cons welcomed... it would be much appreciated.
