I live in Beaufort S.C. and I Located this site today and wanted to say hello. I am in the planning stages of starting up my first hive. I read lots of books and have ordered some supply magazines. I plan to attend a Beekeepers Association meeting in December. The wife is cool with the idea of having Bee's around the property so it is a go. I will need all the help I can get since the only other interaction I have had with bees before was a 40 Yard dash. I Look forward to picking your brains.
