   Just checking in. I am just starting out this year. I have assembled two 8 frame hives and ordered my package bees and also most of the common meds to start out with. Have read several books some old some new and also have been following forums and such. Still lots to learn and do.

Welcome Randy!

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."

Welcome to the forum, Randy.  You may also want to check about a local bee club.  Good luck

Hello and Welcome!

I'll second the recommendation to get involved with a local club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers. There are a lot of great beekeepers in the West Central club - here's  a list of clubs and contact info:
http://www.in.gov/dnr/entomolo/files/ep-beekeeper_assoc.pdf

Also, the State Beekeepers meet at Purdue every summer for a field day in the Purdue bee yards. We'll be meeting on June 22nd this year. No info on the website yet since we just had our spring meeting this past weekend, but check back from time to time (we have a complete website overhaul coming soon):
