I have had an interest in beekeeping for years but really never took the step to start until this spring.
After several months on reading books, internet sites and forums, I hived my first package last Wednesday. Everything went by the book. No stings even without gloves. Still felt better wearing the hat and veil. Bees appear to be fine after 3 days. Looking forward to checking on them next week.
I am sure I will have questions soon.
