Hello from Swanton, Ohio

This will be our first year as beekeepers. We are excited and nervous at the same time. If anybody has any helpful tips on how to successfully install our first ever pack of bees into our flow hive brood box, we would greatly appreciate it. Can’t wait to read all the great tips on this forum.

I’m a little south of you in Columbus.

Good luck and let us know if you have questions! Hopefully you have some good books to get an overview.

There’s a lot of content on YouTube - one of my favorite channels in from university of Guelph in Ontario. Their climate pretty similar to ours, which is a bonus.
