Welcome!

By the time you get your bees you should already be an expert.  rolleyes

It is good that you made your decision to start in time to get in some local bee clubs and have a chance to look in some hives. One thing I wish I would have done differently is I wish I would have put more effort into getting local bees instead of ordering packages from down south. I didn't know where to look so I took the easy route. Local bees would have been just as easy if I knew where to look. No, there probably won't be enough to go around but you'll get yours if you put your order in this summer.
