This thread is for anything to do with bees.
What kind of bees?
Bees that you keep in a hive for honey.
Oh, like honeybees! You know that pollinators like Mason bees are important too.
Any good resources to look into to help with the to bee or not to bee question? My husband has always been interested in beekeeping.
There are many good primers on beekeeping, oddly enough "Beekeeping for Dummies" is one of the best intro book out there. 'Getting Started Right With Bees' is another. The bibles of beekeeping are 'The ABC and XYZ of Beekeeping', and 'The Hive and the Honeybee', but be aware that they are expensive. Two trade magazines are 'Beeculture' and 'American Bee Journal', both excellent monthly magazines.
Oh, and there are a few good forums out there also. If you can stand a heavy dose of Liberalism BeeSource.com has the best traffic of any of the forums, and for good ole boy bee talk go to BeeMaster.com

Thank you for the book suggestions. Maybe the more expensive ones could be a birthday present. Hmmmm...
