Hello from a prospective keeper
« on: December 18, 2012, 10:41:23 PM »
Hello....I am thinking about getting into beekeeping.  I happened to pick up a book on bees at the library and I am completely fascinated by these insects.  I have been reading every book I can get my hands on.  My current plans are to go with a top bar hive.  I am currently in the Philly area but I may be moving to the DC area in the spring.

Welcome, pull up a chair, strap on a goalie mask and a pair of boxing gloves. Things can get kinda heated here in the dead of winter.

Welcome to the forum.  Beek is addictive, be fore warned.  Good luck it is great pass time, hobby, etc.
