I am new to bee keeping. I got my first bees 8 days ago. I live in Texas so things have already started blooming for awhile. The bees seem to doing well they are bringing in. Pollen. So my question is when do I stop using Pro Sweet and Sugar water? Also I have my hive about 10 yards to the pond but there are trees between is that ok? When should I see comb being comb. Also do I need a mice gaurd? I know that's allot of questions. But I have been doing allot of reading and watching YouTube. I have tried to find someone that has bees that could be willing to mentor me. But know one does around were I live. And I live way out in the country. The closet large town is 1 hour away. I cannot drive because of health issue. I tried the closes bee club and asked if they knew of some around where I live and they didn't know anyone. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
