Hey everyone! This is my first post and I’m already so grateful to all of you who have been sharing your wisdom. I’ve read lots of great information already!
I live on the coast in North Carolina.
I don’t have any bees or equipment yet and do have a mentor. She thinks I’m crazy to want to start with the Flow Hive and so do the other local beekeepers. They have warned me to save my money and not get the Flow Hive. They say it’s going to complicate the learning curve. They also do not like the idea of plastic.
What are your thoughts? I’m getting it anyway but do not know how to respond to their comments.
What are your thoughts about the plastic/bees in the FlowHive?
Has anyone had experience with a particular type of electric fence and bears? We do have a large black bear in the neighborhood.
We currently have a corral with an electric fence. Do you think it would work to place the hives within the corral?
What are your favorite types of bees for calmness and honey?
Thank you in advance!
