    Hello All

    Wife got me a beginner hive for Christmas. Devoured the book in two days. I think she created a monster.

    Can't wait till spring to get started.

    Thanks
    Bill

    "Wife got me a beginner hive for Christmas. Devoured the book in two days."

    First of all, a beginner hive is called a nuc. Second of all, don't feed them books. :lol:
    Lastly, welcome to the forum. I'm fairly new here myself so I'm not in a position to be an official greeter but I'm like you, new to the hobby and I can't get enough information. This is a good resource to have in your starter package.

    Monsters are welcome here...LOL :hi:
    Welcome to the best forum on the net!!! You'll learn more here than anywhere but in your own hives. Don't be afraid to print copies of some of the topics on here for future reference as well as asking questions.

    Nice to have your wife on your side with a hobby like bees. Maybe she'll join you taking care of the girls. The closest my wife gets to the bees is to eat honey or chew propolis but othewise, she keeps her distance.
    Enjoy.

    The local bee club is taking orders for nucs at the club meeting on 2-24-2012. They said it wasn't too late. Also, I think they will pair me with a mentor who lives about 10 miles from home.

    That is what we try to do at our club, pair up a mentor and new bee that are close together.

    you will be amazed at what you will learn in a short time once you get inside of a hive with some one that can explain what you are seeing.
