Aloha. Just signed up. I didsome bee keeping 25 years ago when I lived on Kauai. I moved here to Molokai 20 years ago and didn't do anything with bees until a swarm got in the wall in my garage a couple years ago. I just decided to get some equipment and try to put the hive in boxes. I ordered a suit and a smoker and just am making some boxes. I made  9 5/8" Langworth style supers so far. I have to order frames and foundations. Shipping to Hawaii is always a problem. US Parcel Post take OVER 2 months. I don't have ANY idea who GOOD suppliers are? My first question of many to follow is: Hopefully I'll get the queen with the brood. I've taken a LOT of wild hives when I lived on Kauai. Mostly from hollow trees and some from walls.. Is it better to start with 1 deep super and a medium/shallow [5 11/16 or 6 5/8] on top it or what? I have 2 deep boxes [9 5/8] now but I can cut them down smaller if it's better. I was planning to put the brood in frames in the deep one with a medium 5 11/16 on top. Should I buy a queen before tearing things apart and trying to transfer the hive? Aloha and Mahalo!
