Welcome aboard Ryan. I am sort of new here myself but only have one hive that I started last August from a swarm that I bought off of a friend who has a beekeeping business. As I started reading and people telling me about bees,I got really interested in them and their unique life cycle.At 75 years old and not to smart,I do hope to be successful in keeping them around and alive.I am hoping to have a few more hives and have a Nuc ordered to be picked up in May. I built a couple swarm traps and hope to come up with something there too.So far,it's been quite a learning experience but well worth it.I even have my wife onboard with me. She watches my six.
Where are you located ?
My hive is in NE Ohio.
