This is my very first year. I'll be putting my hive together next weekend, and picking up my packaged bees in April. I live in southern Maine near Portland. I've been doing a lot of research on-line and through books, but nothing beats talking to others. I'm glad I came accross this site. I also joind my local Beekeepers chapter and found there are quite a few beekeepers in my county. It may be helpful to others to check there local areas for chapters. They are very willing to help. Good luck to all you beginners!

Thanks all: Woodchopper, I'm actually a mile from rt. 202 in Windham. ME. The response from everyone has been great.

Happy Beekeeping!
