    I have a friend willing to give me 2 old(a few years) hives that he isn't using. He did beekeeping for a few seasons and then quit. He has a lot of other hobbies LOL:lpf: So, other than looking for American Foulbrood, what else would make you say no to free boxes and frames? Keep in mind, I...
  2. Where To Buy . . .

I was in the process of ordering the equipment when I learned of a beekeeper in my...

    Hi all, I live in metro Atlanta and I just started beekeeping this year in May with two packages. I've read all the books, attended a short course, a couple of beekeeper association meetings (when my schedule allows), and pestered any mentor who would respond. Unfortunately, the only spot I have...
