Good day all. My wife and I have been interested in starting beekeeping for a while and we are ready to take plunge although our timing is not quite right.
Our primary goal is to use the honey for our own use (we use about 1.5 gallons a month) and seconarily, the hobby of keeping the bees and teaching our children about them. As most of you would agree they are most facinating. I remember the first time I saw the video of the dance of a scout bee. It is engrained in my mind.... Enough of that.....
Since starting a new hive will have to wait until spring and then it is likely that we will not get any honey until the following year, it is a long wait and I am considering looking for an exhisting that might help speed that process at least a little bit.
I found this posting. What do you think. Is it worth $110? I don't have any pictures yet but assuming the hive is in decent shape....
"Vigorous hive w/ new queen, screened bottom board, brood box, queen excluder, med super, inner & out cover $110"
Thanks for looking and we look forward to becoming part of this community.
