...I guess you know you are a beekeeper when...your husband asks you if you want diamond jewelry for Christmas or bee equipment - and you choose BEE EQUIPMENT!!
2 complete medium hives with 4 extra boxes,
2 queen excluders, 2 bee escape boards,
smoker, frame perch
I got the free shipping from Brushy Mtn and it arrived Christmas Eve day. Pretty cool. I still need to order the bee suits (soon!), some extra frames, and a few other things from Dadant- all still part of the "Christmas present package". Pretty exciting for a newbie who's feral bees are STILL in the garbage can!!
