I'm sure this question has been asked on here many times. I am new here so I do not know the answer. I am reading, "Beekeeping for Dummies." The author says that package bees are the best way to go because they are easier to handle for a new beekeeper. Also, alot of the apiaries are putting on there websites that nucs are the best way too. I do not know if this is a sale tactic to get more money or what. What do you guys think?
By the way, I think I have my wife convinced to let me give beekeeping a try! But not in our backyard. She said I could do it at our family's 400 acre plot of land out in the country. So I am pleased!
