I am interested in starting a hive and looking for any information on the do's and don'ts. I was always told that eating local honey could help your allergy symptoms and since there's nothing more local than you own backyard, it seems like a great idea!

I keep bees. We have 8 hives right now, but we have had as many as 14. If you have any questions, maybe I can help. I am pretty sure we have made most if not all of the beginner mistakes.
This guy, kirk anderson is here in LA. go to www.kirksurbanbees.com or www.backwardsbeekeepers.com.
I just read an article in Mother Earth News about beekeeping. It talked about top-bar beekeeping and other than for the supplies to make the hive, which can be really cheap or free which would make the whole thing free. I'm going to make my own this winter so I'll be ready in the spring! http://www.motherearthnews.com/Sustainable-Farming/Top-Bar-Beekeepi...
Hey folks - there's an apiarists group now!
Hey Cassandra, have you tried making this top bar hive from the barefoot beekeepers' plans yet?
How did it go? I'm EXTREMELY novice with woodworking and wonder if it is a project I can tackle....
