I am brand new to beekeeping and am located in northern West Virginia. So far, I have built two red oak 4' TBHs, two 7 frame matching top bar nucs, a few swarm traps, and should finish up a bee vac this weekend. The goal is to start out with only feral bees. If networking produces more than two colonies, there's a whole stack of wood out in the shed begging to be turned into another TBH, Warre, or something that works with my current top bar size, as I want everything to interchange. If anyone hears of a removal needed in my area, please let me know. Thanks everyone, and this site has helped me so much.
