    I'm a new beekeeper, started researching about a year ago, and have captured three swarms in the last two months.
    All of these are in top bar hives, plan on picking up several Lang hives this weekend, they are empty.
    Still learning and will have a lot of questions.
    Hope you can deal with a bunch of questions as I am sure I will have them.

    Welcome, Robert. I doubt you will pose the first question to be asked here. :D

    So ask away.

    Thanks for the welcome.
    Skyhigh, I'm over in Valrico, which is north of you. About twenty miles from Tampa.
