    I am guessing my homeowner's association would frown upon me getting into this...

    You would be surprised. Can’t hurt to ask. A lot of people keep in city settings

    Beekeeping is really cool. Unfortunately it goes on the list of awesome things that 1) I don't have extra money or time for and 2) my wife would murder me if I got into.

    Queen production on the Big Island of Hawaii. Some of the largest operations in the world are located here in Hawaii. I believe they go for $25 a piece. This frame has about 45 potential queens, thus this frame is worth over $1k.

    I do not keep bees but I've been known to make mead from time to time if you've got spare honey.

    My wife loves working with the bees - she retired a few years ago to help care for our aging parents. Only her Mom is left now and since I'm still working she does more than I do with the apiary.

    Fortunately, we have 57 acres of mixed fields and woods so it's not as if we're surrounded with bees - although we see them around all the time.

    I think it’s neat that the two of you do that. I’m jealous of all that land! I live on a half acre in a HOA that is stripped of most of the original trees. Well, cheers to your hobby!

    Thanks. We are very fortunate to have been the only of Lynn's 7 siblings interested in her family's summer/retirement place - an old horse farm here in northeast PA. 25 minutes to work in the city and wake up to a little piece of heaven every day. Perfect for bees!

    I’m halfway considering keeping bees as my retirement “career” in the next few years

    I got to go to the one in Cali. Awesome place for a beekeeper. You guys are lucky to have access to beekeeping stores such as Mannlake. All most all of our beekeeping gear needs to be ordered online, shipped to hawaii either by air or boat which adds an additional 30-40% increase in the cost. We had to order about 2K of equipment, then they added an additional $600-700 worth of shipping costs!

    I don't have enough balls to do this. I've been stung at least twice (which probably isn't much in the big scheme of things) and it sucks. How do you prevent them from swarming? Those Africanized bees will come after you.
