I've been wanting to keep bees for several years, but I've always too intimidated mainly by the overwhelming amount of information available and the high cost of starting. But I've finally discovered a more economical method of getting into beekeeping (mainly by building my own hive) and hope to start this journey in the spring.

Welcome to the forum, Shinjak.  If you join a local club, someone there may sell you some bees cheaper or help you catch a swarm.  Good luck on your new adventure.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. To be honest, I've done some serious research on swarm traps, trapping, and bee hunting. I'm not sure my first experience with bees should be removing them from a swarm trap though.  huh So I'm hoping to get up with some local beekeepers before swarm season to get my toes wet. As far as hives, frameless seems like the best option for me so I'm currently studying the pros and cons of vertical top bar hives vs. horizontal top bars. I can build both cheaply so I may just try both. Thanks again.

Western NC is a large area, but it would cost gas only to visit Brushy Mountain bee supply, Miller bee supply, Reel bee supply, and Orr bee supply. All within a few miles of you, and all full of info.  Also, you have a very good queen breeder in canton. If you don't know him, I can look him up.

Put your city or the nearest town in your profile and you will get better info
