Howdy from MS!
« on: August 19, 2013, 01:22:49 AM »
New (soon-to-be-hopefully) beekeeper here in North MS!  Hoping to get all the equipment over the winter and put a hive together next spring.  Excited to find this place!

Welcome to the forum, Woodsmith.  There are lots of threads and videos here that can help.  Find your local bee club, they can bee a big help.  There are clubs all over MS.  Good luck

Welcome aboard.
Where are your bees coming from?
And get extra boxes and frames. Better to have plenty than not enough.
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

Not sure yet, I have a list of local breeders and a couple of recommendations.

hjon is right, I have had to turn down some bees because I was out of supers and frames to put them in.  I have caught swarms and put them in a shallow super until I could get more deep or mediums built.  Good luck.
