hello and how do you do
« on: March 07, 2014, 11:22:40 PM »
I'm a retiree with lots of time and bad cabin fever. I recently completed a top bar hive . 25 bars and a super with 12 pint jars and the possibility of at least 3 times that #. I plan to place this hive in the country near a large pond and many acres of woods . I'm going to use a scent attractant to try to get a local swarm into this hive. I know there are bees in the area, they are in my garden every where in the mornings.

Welcome to the forum, hivebuilder.  There are many threads and videos here that may help.  You may want to find and join your local bee club.  It would help on people helping or getting with you if you fill in your location.  Good luck
