New from Central Florida
« on: January 14, 2013, 11:08:56 PM »
I just started beekeeping.  Can't wait for Spring.  Ordered my bees and have my equipment.  Family thinks it's weird I want to have bees,but I've always found them fascinating.  I also have a bat box, no bats yet, just because I find them interesting.  Love this site.  Al ton of info here.  Thank you all.

Welcome Joyce! Where in central FL are you? There's a few of us around.

Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I live in Ormond Beach.  My first attempt at beekeeping and I am so excited.  Beekeeping seems to satisfy my need to learn about biology and the sciences.  The more I learn about bees the more intrigued I get.  I'm not going into this for the honey, or to expand, etc.  If and when I do it's a plus.  I am doing this for the sheer pleasure and knowledge I'll get from learning about these amazing insects.  I appreciate any and all info.  I am currently looking for any beekeeping classes around the area, as well as beekeeping clubs. 
Thanks again,
Joyce
