Welcome Lisa. Yes, honeybees can be quite the obsession. I went from just one hive last year to 5 hives most recently as a result of obtaining swarms and buying one NUC. It sure is a new learning curve for me but it still remains fun. I have to ask a lot of questions. Fortunately,I now belong to a beekeeper's association and have people that help me with my answers. Good luck with your new hobby.
