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