Hi, I’m in Northern NJ, Jefferson Township/Oak Ridge to be exact and this will be my first year with bees. I have a flow hive that will be put together shortly and a regular hive. I mentioned the flow hive to a mentor in my group Sussex County Beekeepers Assoc. and got nothing but good vibes. I told them that I’m gonna be the Guinea pig for the group. I’ll be comparing the hives as I go along. My bees are coming the third week of April (2 sets of Nucs) and I’m so looking forward to it.
I posted a question on here (my 1st one) to ask what everyone is using as foundation in the frames and I got a couple good responses, just what I was looking for, but then it went off on a tangent. The discussing went on to Swarming and why they swarm, referencing cell size.
Anyway, looking forward to hearing more from NJ Flow Hive keepers.
