    Default Looking for nuc/hive/supplies in DC area

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a new beekeeper living in Chevy Chase, MD, and I'm looking to buy a nuc or established hive. I would prefer something that will align with the langstroth hive I've built. My price range for the nuc/hive is between $50-$100, depending on what we're talking about. Please send me a message and we can chat.

    I'm also looking to buy some of the standard beekeeping gear (veil/suit, gloves, smoker, langstroth frames), and was hoping that someone in the area might have some used stuff I could buy. Happy to discuss prices and see if we can work something out.

    In both cases, I'd prefer to do exchanges locally and in person.

    Thanks!
    Doug

    No disrespect intended, but about the only thing with live bees that you will be offered at this price is a package of bees.

    Oh, really? Sorry... I'm new to all of this and don't have a good sense for what a reasonable price would be. Any chance you could provide some guidance?

    Thanks

    I would hook up with the Montgomery County Beekeepers or another local group.
    These folks are in Montgomery County and sell equipment and bees

    There is also VA Bee Supply in Fauquier County
