Thanks, as new beekeepers my husband and I are still learning. We have all the equipment, but now need some bees. Any ideas? Our local association doesn't seem to want to "share" any spare swarms....I remember when I first started reading bee books and using bee forums getting lost by acronyms.
Below is a little list that new beekeepers may find useful.

AHB - Africanized Honey Bees
