Hello out there! My name is Kelly. The flow hive will be my first hive. I’ve been considering getting bees for quite some time, but we also weren’t settled anywhere long enough for me to feel comfortable starting. Recently my husband and I decided we would settle in Alaska’s interior (where we have been for the past two years). A little after making that decision and deciding I would start a hive in the 2016 season we found the flow hive and he was amazing enough to order one for me.
I just wanted to say hello, would love any advice and info any of you more experienced beekeepers have to share, and would love to find some beekeepers that deal with colder and more extreme temperatures. I’ve been doing a lot of research into the creation/ breeding of bees that can survive an alaskan winter and I know other areas must have similar challenges.
