Hellllllllllloooooooooooo ALL. This is my first of many post on this forum. This one may be long. I promise to shortin them after this. I have decided to go w/ the ktbh. I just built on last weekend. I did a hirschbachapiary.com Very easy to build. I am doing a Bush one this weekend. These will be my first ones ever. I am one of the guys that has never read a book about beekeeping yet. I have 2 ordered. I know its not the way to go. But I am jumping in head first. A few questions. Some maybe dumb but bear with me.
***** I have 16 Brood and 18 Honey bars. Triangle style. Do I need to put a divider w/ an opening in the bottom between them. To serperate the brood and the honey.
***** I plan on having both my hives done this weekend. And bees ordered shorty after. If I have bees installed by Early-Mid April will this be enough time for them to settle in and make enough honey for them to make it though next winter.
Lets start here and roll with it. I would personally like to think Bee Source, Michael Bush and Hirschbach Apiary. Your info and dedication greatly appreciated.
