Going to pick up a hive & all other accessories today. Bees to come in 1- 1 1/2 weeks. The whole set-up including bees will be ~$300 which I didn't think was too bad.
Never done bees before but have a few neighbors that have them. The only spot I think will work is on an eastern facing slope in the woods a little. Not an ideal place for morning sun but I don't want them too close to the house, or too far.
Any suggestions? Equipment preferences? Good reads?
