It's pretty late into the year to decide to become a hobbyist Beekeeper. I talked with a couple of keepers in my area that are very instructional and tell me I should hold off until spring to purchase Bees. I bought three Deep Hive bodies two for brood and the third for a honey super, one five frame Nuc, I also have an observation hive. I will be interested in queen rearing so I got an EZ-Queen system, nothing to do now but wait and get involved in learning all I can from good folks like you all, I will greatly need some help here. I would like to learn how to trap feral hives, what to use and how to's in all respects. I've subscribed to the ABJ but I haven't gotten a copy yet so I use the Internet extensively to find out information. I'm looking forward to having fun on this forum.
