I would X the following items: but just personal preference
1) Hive Stand
5 sets of 9 frame spacers
1) top feeder with supper
1) Bee brush
1) Wood Bound Metal Queen Excluder
1) metal Mouse guard
1) Frame grip ??
Spacers to me are a waste of time and you want 10 frames in a super when first drawing foundation.
If cost is a factor feed with jar top feeders. If you want a super type Top feeder Dwight Porter makes a good one (porter bee farm in Easley) As a matter of fact all of Porters equipment comes assembled and painted for the same price or close as catalog unassembled. Call him if going to a class consider a group order to save on pick-up etc he will usually deliver large orders to clubs... I don't like assembling and painting equipment if I can get it finished for the same price. www.porterfarmbees.com/
Bee brush to me a waste @ first and maybe always. a turkey feather works just as good for a brush.
I do not run excluders as such sometimes use them for other purposes. I like free roaming queens :-D
I have not used mouse guards in five years -- never had a mouse in our parts in active equipment. May have mice in all of them now, since I made this statement :-D
Hive stand--- I use concrete blocks under the bottom board. Hive stands are pretty to look at but sometimes an added cost and an extra piece of equipment I don't need.
I would buy an Italian hive tool from the start --- worth the money. I guess your brood chambers will be mediums if your super are. If not it is the way to go --- standardize everything from the start. I would even strongly consider 8 frame equipment. Wish I had!!! Only draw back to mediums is buying nucs which are usually deeps in our area unless you make special request.
I'm sure you have already found the Midstate Beekeppers: www.midstatebeekeepers.com/
They will be offering a short course soon!
