Hi. I am new to beekeeping (started 2 hives last year) and am very interested in starting 2 new hives this year with 4.9mm. I have been reading this site quite a bit and am ready to take the plunge.

It would be very helpful to me to know of some beekeepers in North Carolina who are keeping bees on 4.9mm. Does any one know any beekeepers in NC that is doing this?

By the way, the 2002 Brushy Mountain Bee Farm catalog offers 4.9mm (page 36).
