Good afternoon everyone,
I joined the forum to learn more about bees. I recently read an article about Colony Collapse Disorder and it set me down a path of learning all about bees and how complex their behaviours and societies are. I had no idea. Everything I learned inspired me to write a sci-fi story about bees, which has been surprisingly well received. Now I'm sitting down to write the sequel and have realized I am in over my head!
A beekeeper friend suggested I sign up for this forum due to the wealth of information available, so here I am.
Next month the same friend has invited me out to his farm to get some hands on experience with his hives. I can't wait!
I look forward to chatting with you all about these amazing insects :)
