Well just starting out with 4 hives two of which will be top bar and two Langstrogh. Been researching a whole lot already and have taken a basic class in beekeeping. But I find there is a lot more information to be learned just going about the forum. I've used bees before in my acupuncture practice but am looking forward to getting honey and wax as well.
So far my two top bars are doing well since I've hived them out earlier this week. Lots of activity and thankfullly the weather has warmed up and they are taking syrup steadily. The bees for the langstrogh hives have not shipped yet so I'll be waiting until then to ask further questions since I am not as familiar with that set up.
I'll be back with more questions soon while the bees are hopefully building up comb but I haven't gone into the hive again except to check the syrup which is separated by a follower board.
