A future beekeeper here. I plan on spending the rest of this year learning all that I can, find a local group to attend meetings, and find a place to keep them! Unfortunately, a 40x120 lot with a rear yard only 12' deep places some constraints on what I can do at home. I have already purchased the Dummies book and Backyard beekeeper for reference material. Also, other than Queenrightcolonies, do any of the other suppliers sell paraffin-dipped hive bodies?
