    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Randy and I live in Union Beach, New Jersey. We (My wife Erin, daughter Olivia, and son Vaughn) live in a small suburban lot about a mile inland from Raritan Bay.

    Two of my co-workers got me interested in beekeeping and I installed my first colony in an 8 frame hive in July of this year. And though our lot is pretty small, we have a stockade fence between ourselves and our neighbors and it seems to keep the bees overhead when they leave our yard.

    I need lot's of help and I really appreciate the knowledgeable individuals that are posting on this forum.

    I depend on this forum for the best information available on anything pertaining to my bees - seldom do you post a question that it's not addressed very quickly. Beekeeping can be very lonely if your local bee club isn't interested in mentoring.

    Welcome!

    This is one of the friendliest, and most helpful, forums I've ever been a part of! Don't be shy at all about asking questions. I was overwhelmed when I first started posting, and felt like "gosh, I'm going to ask something that's already been asked, and make people mad".

    NOPE!

    Every person's experience is different, every person's bee yard is different. And even if something is a general question that's already been asked, well, someone on the forum will be able to dig up a previous post about that has great answers.
