So I am getting ready for April, what else do I need?
I am looking to have three hives
-6 deep hive bodies
- Corresponding wood frames with plastic foundation
-3 bottom boards - solid
-3 inner covers
- 3 top covers
-Made 3 wood feeders that sit on top of inner cover that hold mason 2 mason jars each
-box of gallon baggies
-25 pounds of Domino sugar
-smoker fuel (cotton) also using wood shavings
-jacket with veil
-frame holder that sits on side of box
-I will be making 1" feeder frames that will sit on the deep for the baggies
I am not sure if I need a pollen or feed for the packages that are coming? or just sugar water. Is there anything else I need? I was thinking about making a nuc box in case I can catch a swarm.
