Hi everyone. Been keeping bees in So FL for a bit now, and my Mother caught 'bee flu' while helping around my hives. We're going to get her set up with a colony (I am trying to talk her into two) in SE Mass this spring. (We are ordering 5 frame Nucs) Her birthday is late March, so I want to order the equipment she will need for her colony. I do not know what flows you have, or when up there, and have absolutely no clue how quickly we should expect to expand her colony. I know I can't apply Florida experiences up there. We will transfer the Nuc to 10 frame deeps...what other wooden ware should I anticipate for the season? I will be recommending she use shallow supers. Any and all input is appreciated!! She will begin going to her local meetings, but can't attend her first until mid Feb. I need to order the equipment before then, but no clue how much she may need for her location. Thanks everyone!
