I'm just beginning to learn about the wonderful world of bees and found this forum.  We are planning to start up next spring and hope to learn a lot this winter.

Welcome to the forum, JanO.  There are lots of threads and videos here that can help.  When you have questions just post them someone will usually get you an answer.  You may want to find your local bee club and join it also.  Beek is very addictive.  Good luck

Thank you for the welcome Joe.  Yes, I've found an association in our county that I plan to join after the new year.  I'm also planning on taking a class at some point.  In the meantime I'm reading all I can and learning a lot.  The more I read the more fascinated I am. 

We aren't planning a big operation, just a couple of hives for our own honey production and to possibly give to friends and family.  However I can certainly see how that plan can explode into many hives.  We have a couple of swarms that come through every year and land in the same tree and we are optimistic that we will be able to trap them and place them in our first hives next spring.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
