Last year was my first year in Honey Bees. This year im thinking of jumping in with 50 hives this year. The hives will cost me $150/hive
What other things are gonna cost me money, I'd like to make a realistic budget plan prior to buying the 50.
Obviously Boxes and frames
Sugar and feeding pails-spring and fall
Terramycin for AFB
Fumagilin for Nosema
Apivar for Varroa
Barrels to fill( will recover deposit once shipped to local Co-op)
Extractor ( I own a new 4 frame extractor but look to share with a local friend this year, hope to raise enough cash this year to purchase one next year)
What am I missing? I appreciate your knowledge and help.
