Hi i just started this hobby and am diving right in.  I find this site to be helpful and educational.  I hope i find someone fairly close so to  have hands on learning experince. I am starting with 21 hives ( hive body and a shallow super) already with bees of which i obtained from a older fellow that is moving out of state at the end of the month.  So i'm sure i am going to have lots of questions.  Thanks in advance for all the help.

Has anyone heard from PDMATTOX lately?  With 21 hives and being a newbee, he/she might have gotten eaten!

And after all that studying just remember that when it comes to beekeeping there are no know it all experts--just sperts.
