Welcome to the forum. :th_thumbsupup:
Years ago when I started beekeeping by myself, I did a lot of worrying. Then a good friend reminded me that the bees have done their thing for thousands of years without my help and will be around after I am gone. What I need to do is help provide them with a home and foods in time of dearths and they will give me honey for my help. After that I can help by fighting off the bees predators, bears, mites, insecticides etc. I get to spend hours enjoying watching them go about their business.
My 'friend' also told my that I do not get to call myself a beekeeper unless I get stung a couple of times each year. :lau: :lau: :lau: -Mike
