Brand new Bee keeper:
My Flow Hive will arrive in February and we are in Hawaii.
I have contacted a group near my home but they will not meet until
November for a Director’s meeting and voting.
Where do I start and of the myriad books which do I start with. I am reading everything on the internet and am getting confused.
One guide says keep the bees out of the wind, and another says wind is preferred since it discourages the beetles.
How do I find a mentor and which bees and how many do I order? One hive only and I want to be prepared to do my best.
Also, which flowers in Hawaii are preferred by the bees. I can get my garden ready for them now.
