New bee keeper in Pennsylvania...
« on: April 10, 2012, 08:20:05 PM »
  Hi, me and my wife are newbies at this and are expecting our 2 packages of bees on April 12th.  Hives are set on the new hive stand and expecting to receive the bees on Thursday.  I have been researching everything i could for about a year to prepare and found out quickly that everyone has their own ways of doing things which can be confusing at times.  Thanks to everyone here and other sites, I know we can make this a success.......

Welcome to the forum.  The BIG day is near!  Pull up a lawn chair alongside the hives and watch your girls work.  This is a great place to learn.  A lot of knowledge and experience on this site.

Welcome to the site!

You're from my neck of the woods. Born and raised there.

Good luck with your bees when you get them!

Welcome to the forum.  You may look into a local club also.  Good luck with your bees.

Welcome!    We just installed our first two packages, too.    It was amazing.   And fascinating.  Good luck to you!

Hi from Adams County PA!
Life is too short not to stop and watch the bees.
