I guess I am not a beekeeper yet but will be next week. I am going to pick up my hive bodies and other pieces tonight and get them painted and will pick up my bees on May 5. I live in a subdivision and have .66 acres so I will be an urban beekeeper I guess. I was a little concerned my spot didn't have enough sunlight because it seems like SHB are a big problem around here but it starts getting direct sunlight around 9 and has it until 6. Before 9 there is still alot of ambient light around so it's not like it's deep in the woods so hopefully they will still get started early. My hive will be about 75' from my house. Hopefully that won't be a problem. I have been on the fence about getting into this and can't remember what put it in my head but figured I would just dive in.
