We have two hives at present. They are fun to watch and learn from. I hope to intreste you into getting bees as they are slowly going extinct. Due to colony collapse disorder they are having a problem thriving. The rule is to learn as much as possible. Do not be afraid to ask any questions. My DH has studied on them for three years before we got them. We have a local honey farmer to help us with any thing we need also. You also get the benifit of having your crops pollinated and all the honey you could ever eat. One hive is able to produce close to 100 lbs of honey in a year ( a good year) and that is not including what they need for winter stores.
I will post some links to diffrent bee places to get every one started. I also will tell you to check with the local ag office or state web site for the rules for your state. In Tennessee we have to register them and they can inspect them at any time. My picture is of one of our wild bees in a huge hive behind the house in a hickory tree. It took several tries to get a good one. They do not like to have pictures taken very well. lol
