About me:
I tried beekeeping about 9 years ago. I made an elaborate TBH, but was never successful in getting a colony started. For health reasons I had to give up the hobby. I am thinking about getting started again and would love to have a mentor I can help and learn from.
I use the following type of bee hives:

Hello Ted Wilcox

My name is William B. McCoy and I am trying to get started in Beekeeping in West Virginia.    I have contacted my state Agriculture Department, and they inform me that they have a program called Veterans & Warriors to Agriculture Project in my state for Vet.   I would like to go with the Top Bar Type of hive instead of the Langstroth hive I feel the Top Bar would be better.   But back here all they ever seen or work with is the Langstroth.   So, I now have to convince them back here the Top Bar is worth a try, and can make money.   I was told you done research in this area and you could help me.  I can be reached at  mccoybill47@yahoo.com or call me at 304 641 2216 

Thank you

William B McCoy

I have ordered 25 queens and it works out with shipping to be $32.00.  They will be coming in Thursday sometime and I will take some to Ken’s Friday at around 5:00 p.m. and I can meet people at the K-Mart on I-40 and Carlisle around 6:00 p.m….  If you can’t make it either of those places or times please let me know and I will work out something with you.  Thanks.
