Hi and Happy New Year to all.

I'm a retired firefighter from Reno, NV. transplanted out here in MS. We have been here since '93, so I suppose we are becoming locals....Ha Ha  I have plenty of spare time to devote to this hobby.

I have been reading everything I can get my hands on about beekeeping, there is a ton. Got two hives built w/4 supers for each. Waiting to order a couple packages of bees soon. I think I will use foundationless frames (a little less expensive)
The cost can sure add up for a starting beekeeper. Type at ya'll soon.

Thanks Joe D. and all for the nice welcome. I'm looking forward to gaining a lot of info and help from the folks on this forum.

And Larry we got side tracked the wife took a job here at twice her salary and has since retired. We really like the place we have here (about 7 acres) out away from town. Sooooo..no decisions yet on any move.

Several people here in mid MS that you can get nucs from instead of ordering packages. message me and I will give you a few names.  Harry Fulton the State Entamologiest and long time leader of the the state beekeeping associaton is up north MS might e mail him for more local info bigbee.valley.bees@att.net I find that local stock is heartier and more pest resistant than ordering from out of state.
