    Default New to Beekeeping - Wilmington , NC

    Hey Everyone!

    First time beekeepers here - we've learned a lot from our local beekeepers association beekeepers school and are excited for our bees to arrive!
    We love everything outdoors so this was a natural next step for us.

    Like most things we decide to dip our toes into we go all in - by that I mean we:
    Built our hives from scratch
    Did our own wax dip for our wooden goods
    Built swarm boxes (8) and put them up around the county
    Ordered Nucs as a backup to the swarm boxes.
    Passed the state certification written exam (not required by any means but was a good way to end bee school)

    Looking forward to learning a lot from y'all on this forum!
