Hi everyone. We've just decided that we want to start keeping bees next spring. I'm really not sure where to begin. I have my FIL, who is a master bargin hunter, looking for hives and equipment for me. Does anyone here build their own hives? How hard/easy is it?
I'm sure I'll have lots of questions as time goes on, I just wanted to take a moment and say hello. Also, is there anyone else here in the Big Rapids/Cadillac Michigan areas? I'm kind of looking for a local group to learn from.
Thanks and I look forward to getting to know you all.
