Hi and welcome from the other side of the world. You will find a heap of useful information here, so start reading and if anything doesn't make sense, just ask and no doubt several answers will be provided. It's a good idea to fill in your location in your profile, that way you will get geographically specific advice when you ask a question. You might even be able to find a beekeeper in your area that is willing to help you increase your sting count :-D (and your experience). Goodluck with your new addiction.
