Welcome!! I too was really excited to find this group, several months before I got my bees. And I still am excited about the forum. Lots and lots of good info and advice. My advice is.................. get more boxes and frames It was pretty funny my first year, my packages did real well, and I discovered I did not have any supers yet, and needed them ASAP. Then a few years later I split 2 hives, and discovered I need a few extra deeps, so I could switch out deep boxes and clean up some that were on the hives. Oh, and stick with one company for your boxes and frames, they all make them a little different. I don't know if anyone gave me that advice, and I didn't follow it, but I've learned the hard way. I'll probably just use the one companies boxes for swarm traps, as a LOT of the wood has warped.
