Hello everyone. I am looking to getting into beekeeping and actually went to Brushy Mtn Bee Farm here in NC and bought a Bee Suit, the beginners kit and a book about Hive Management. I have got the hive body painted and getting things ready to go and was looking for a place to put the hive. Walking behind the house around a wooded area and about 100 yards behind my house is 6 bee hives that a neighbor owns. I was shocked to find these and did not know they were there. Does this mean That I should not go ahead with a couple hives ? Will this be to many bees for the area ?
