Wow! Your cousin has a couple hundred apiaries? That's a lot.ive had a couple and took some college classes.those look like some nice supers too.not the cheap ones I had.bees are the bee's knees.they are really fascinating.your gonna have fun! really ain't nothing to it.just make sure they have sugar water and mite medicine and that's pretty much it. Hopefully the queen bitch don't swarm on ya.happened to me.
Like most farmers, when this guy starts something, he goes in big and for the money. He has a contract with Billy Bee for the honey. Those aren't mine. I got a newbie starter pack from the Farm Supply (FSC), but he said he's giving me a few to start. I'll put my new one next to the garden. The others are going in the bush by a clearing. It'll be fun.
I wouldn't worry about using a smoker.italian hybrid honeybees are breed to be docile.ive never used a smoker or a suit and I've never been stung.you need to try sourwood honey if you haven't tried it.expensive though
I AM THE LIQUOR!
