If so - can you share resources to get started (books to read, reputable places to purchase from, etc).

With the decline in our bee population, I really want to establish a bee colony. I was initially going to wait until I finished school, but with the population declining so rapidly and knowing that it may take me some time to learn - I figured I should at least start learning now so that I can be ready to go once I graduate.

Thanks!

We have had a bee hive in our fence for years.

We leave them alone and they leave us alone except for pollinating the garden.

I'm allergic to their venom, but havent been stung since I was 11.

I know enough to get hurt and possibly kill the bees I want to nurture. Total noob.

Its pretty awesome that they have established themselves. I bet that is interesting to watch throughout the seasons. Well maybe not so cool for you... I'm allergic to a ton of things, but so far not flying stinging critters.

im a keeper, its pretty boring, they fly in and out of the hive, you make sure the beetles and moths are kept to a minimum and steal their honey once a year. not really much to it.
