Almost Ready To Order My Bees & Hive
I am reaching critical mass. After much back and forth, and mind changing, I am 99.9% sure I'll be going with a Langstroth hive, but will be buying 8 frame medium (6 5/8") boxes for both the hive bodies (brood chambers) and the honey supers. And I'll be buying the plastic ritecell frames. They look like the easiest choice and require no additional foundation. For a bee suit I am going to get an Alexander veil, some good quality gloves, and some leg straps. But instead of a full suit, I'm going to try to find a used pair of coveralls. I'll be doing some last minute research and then should be able to order up my bees and hive next weekend. I'm so excited.
