    Default Hello from NJ

    Salutations. I'm a musician in Central NJ and in a week or so I'll be picking up a 4-frame nuc colony and setting it up in a 10-frame deep hive. I've never kept bees before. I'm very excited to watch these lil buggers grow and do their thing.

    I'm also a homebrewer. I make beer, but look forward to making a mead someday with backyard honey.

    Thanks for all the info on this site. Cheers!

    Welcome Jay! You know to use an entrance reducer and feed them until they build out the 10 frame right?

    Yep yep. I have a couple friends who have several years experience, and they're both keeping me straight and answering the seemingly endless list of questions I have. Plus I've read "Beekeeping for Dummies" 2x already, and watched the Univ of GA "Honey Bees & Beekeeping" video on youtube twice. lol - I'm a bit obsessed.
