Hey rather than start a new thread, we will just add ours here if that is ok.

My Wife & I will be installing our first hives sometime next week. We live on 10 acres of woodlands in Coastal NC.

Have a great day.

Hello and Welcome!

This is a great forum for learning more about bees & beekeeping. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum: lots of good info on the basics.

I also encourage you to get involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected with nearby beekeepers. Much of beekeeping is location-specific, so the locals will be able to help you with beekeeping practices that work best in your area.

I live the mountains of NC and in my second year of beekeeping. The weather here has been irratic in temp. I have a list of questions for bee source. Henderson County Beekeeping only meets once a month so bee source is a great source of info.......and comfort.
