    Default New Beekeeper from Andover, KS

    Well, I've done lot's of research and I'm ready to jump in to this endeavor. My hive should be finished tomorrow (Langstroth) but I got a late start so my bees won't be here until mid-May. The anticipation is killing me. I attended my first local beekeeper's meeting yesterday in Wichita. Now I am just that much more fired up. I met some great people in my area. My wife thinks I'm having a mid-life crisis, but she claims that beekeeping is cheaper than a corvette so she is okay with it. Not sure she will feel the same once I have 100 hives. lol.

    Welcome to the club Kansan.

    In some parts of the country they use bricks or a large stone to hold lids on. Some of us in windier areas use rachet straps.

    You just might want to strap down the whole hive in your part of the country.

    Have fun.

    Welcome John! You can only be with one girl in a Corvette and 40 thousand in a hive.
