    ok my daughter is what i would term a bee charmer.She can walk up to anything and pluck a bee right off of it no problems.She then proceeds to play with them for hours and whats amazing to most is that the bee will stay with her :eek: which most people find very alarming...ok so heres my question how can i help her to find honey hives as she has asked me this?

    I would look up the local beekeepers association and join. There you can find a mentor and get started without making a investment until you are sure this is for her. Here is the link to the ones in Washington.

    I've heard of people like that. I wish I was one. It sounds like a person who really needs to be encouraged toward beekeeping.
