Beekeeping

I'm currently enrolled in Bee School with my county's Beekeepers Association. At the end of our classes, we'll take a test to become a Certified Beekeeper. It's been very interesting learning all about honeybees. 

 

Are there any beekeepers here?

My wife and I are beekeepers in South Arkansas. We have been keeping bees at varying levels for 5 or 6 years. We find it fascinating.

I would love to find more info on this and move to a bee-friendly area (currently in NV; too hot here, I've been advised). Please share your knowledge?

 

Thank you in advance!

I'm not a beekeeper but we had bees when I was growing up. My father had three hives in our front yard. In the spring, some of the bees would leave the hives and then swarm and then usually cling to a tree branch which was neat to see. Growing up around them, somehow, rather than getting used to bees, I was always afraid of them, though I don't believe I have ever been stung by a honey bee.

We had a pear tree growing up and I stepped on them several times 😞 Ouch!
