Hello! New here and to beekeeping. I have considering getting into beekeeping for many years and finally ordered a Flow Hive this week. I’ve been reading Michael Bush’s 1st book and his website and find that his methods are the approach I would like to take. I am for doing this as naturally and with as little intervention as possible. But since I’m getting a Flow Hive I will need help knowing how that changes his approach, if any.
I have a local long time beekeeper who I don’t know if he knows of Michael Bush but from talking to him using a very similar natural, non-intervening approach with much success for many years. He is my local go to guy but has no Flow Hive experience.
My Flow Hive will be here this week and I am excited to start assembling and preparing it for spring. I know I will have questions and need help so I am glad to find this group! I’m 1.5 hours west of Ft. Worth, Texas, hoping others from my area are on here so I can learn area/weather specific things I need to know.
Anyone else on these forums from the DFW area, using the Flow Hive and similar beekeeping methods as Michael Bush (natural with no treatments)? After trying other forums and finding people want to talk me out of Flow Hive I’m hoping to find friendly help here!
