I have always been a honey bee fan, but now I am finally taking the steps towards owning my own hives.  I suppose my biggest obstacle has been my wife, because I have allergies to certain bee species.  I have finally convinced her that safety will my top priority and I believe she is on board with this decision!

I am eager to learn everything I can and have already joined my local bee keepers association.  I hope to hit this hobby with plenty of knowledge and some hands on experience prior to owning my first hives.  I believe honey bees are rapidly approaching a crisis situation in the United States and possibly around the world.  Our garden suffered from a lack of pollination for the first part of the blooming season.

First purchase.... EPI-PEN, and training to use it.  20 minutes can be the end of your life.

Of course, I have two epi-pens.  I keep one in my vehicle and the other I keep in my back pack for hiking or numerous other out door activities.   Smiley

Welcome to the forum, adkotahajesban.  I am with iddee, you will need those pens.  I am just a little allergic, I don't get stung a lot but a few times a year.  When I bought my first hives, was stung twice before I got them loaded.  I love my bees and they are very addictive.  Good luck.
