    Hello to all,
    I live in Sumter County, FL and an new as they come to bee-keeping. I sort of inherited a hive with the bees already installed so to speak. Am reading Bee Keeping for Dummies (that would be me). Would like to find someone in the area to talk with concerning the many questions I will have. I have been considering this hobby for awhile now and all of a sudden BOOM it just happened. Will appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

    I think we have at least one other member who's address is Sumter County Florida. A long time ago I lived and kept bees in the Plant City area. Welcome aboard.
