    Hello everyone. I am just getting into beekeeping after a year of interest and reading. I am buying my first hives over the winter and buying two Nucs (any ideas for my area?). If anyone is close to me I'm looking to tag along for a couple of inspections as I do not have time for classes. Any advice and pointers are welcome.

    Welcome scubbes!

    My best advice would be to find your local beekeeper's club and call a few of the locals to talk. They will have the local knowledge that you'll need to be successful.
    Good luck and welcome.
