RE: [beekeeping] Can you direct me somewhere, so I don't ask too many repetitive questions?
I just checked the Dadant website (dadant.com) and they have a branch in High Springs, FL that on the map looked like it might be in your general area? If so going to see them (or calling first would probably be best to see if they have what you need) might be the best bargain; some of this stuff is heavy & shipping can “eat you alive.”

Subject: [beekeeping] Can you direct me somewhere, so I don't ask too many repetitive questions?
Hi group, my name is Mickey, I'm in Tallahassee, FL and am 23, I
enjoy walks on the beach etc. etc... Sorry, that's all true, but I'm
also interested in bees. I have been ever since I learned about
their "dance" in middleschool science class. I had sort of forgotten
about them until recently though. In any case is there a website
where someone in my situation, having little to no knowledge about
these guys can go to learn enough to feel somewhat comfortable, and
maybe venture into the hobby? As in how much does it cost to do this
for someone who just wants to keep 1 hive and be a very small scale
operation, or what kind of time committment does it require, are
there benefits from doing this aside from just enjoying it, where can
I learn about bee clubs in my area so I can actually see a working
hive, how much space does someone need, what kind of environment do
they need to live around? So ya see I've got lots of questions, and
Ichecked to see if there was a bee FAQ I could read, but no luck, of
course I might just not be looking in the right place. So I'm sure
these are the same questions that come up time and again, so if you
could just redirect me I'll gladly go read somewhere rather than
boring you all. Thanks so much.
