    I am interested in constructing some beehives for their honey but where can I learn about this before I jump in?

    I love bees.

    Years ago when we moved to the country I took a corespondent course from an agricultural college.

    I knew absolutely nothing about the bees or rules and regulations.

    But, I did learn a great deal from the course.

    If you don't want to take the course you can get find a place that sells beekeeping supplies.

    They should have plenty of books and advice.

    Unfortunately for me, I developed an allergy to the stings and really miss the bees.

    Good luck and have fun.

    There has to be some good forums or site I can learn from. Rather do that because its FREE and the information is a lot better.
