Hello and Welcome!
I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a good resource for learning more about bees and beekeeping.
Stow - I actually lived there for a brief period - once upon a time 40+ years ago...
If you haven't already, I recommend getting involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers:http://www.ohiostatebeekeepers.org/associations/local-associations/
