tperk,
Welcome to the forum, lots of good folks and information available here.  You will find it to be an invaluable resource in your beekeeping adventures. 

I first got the idea of beekeeping around the end of October and started researching it heavily online.  My game plan originally was to start with one hive.  However, after some research, the benefits of starting with more than one became obvious.  So, my next plan was to start with three, I figured two Nucs and maybe have someone catch me a swarm.  By mid January, I had my first two Nucs.  Since then I've caught about a dozen swarms and  I'm currently in the process of doing 2 trapouts!

Yeah! Fair warning, It's a bit addictive!  :-D

Enjoy!

 Thanks for the warm welcoming!  My local club (which I will be joining next month) has a mentoring program which I am going to take advantage of next February. I am addicted to watching bee videos on You tube now LOL.

I dunno who that is but I am sure there are people on here from my area. I'll probably meet some next month at my 1st local club meeting.
