    Default New fom statham ga

    New guy here and new to bees. I recently moved back to Georgia from Kentucky and I am researching bee keeping. I went and looked at some hives after work a few days ago to try to get some ideas. I am a do-it-yourself-er and want to build my own hive. We have a small pond (maybe 100 gallons) in our backyard and honey bees fly over through the woods behind the house to steal water. I'm hoping to have a hive built and catch a swarm in the spring. I found a place locally that sells then frames for less then 2$ each so I'm going to buy the frames and build the boxes. Any advice would be great. Also I'm in the statham/winder area. If there is anyone in the area that wouldn't mind teaching me sone I apreciate it. Thanks

    Welcome from SC, check out top bar hives, they look like they would be alot easier to build. If you have the right tools you can build anything, but it looks like you can build a top bar with a skill saw and a square. Steve

    There are some great resources on this site. This is what I usually look at when trying to figure out the best method to making hive boxes. http://www.beesource.com/files/10frlang.pdf
    If you think anything organic is good for you, go drink some organic solvents.

    Welcome Nina! $2 might be good with no shipping or taxes but is not really a bargain unless they have foundation or drawn comb.
