This has always been something that has interested me. Does anyone have any good books...suppliers...and tips for keeping bees? Or plans to build a hive?
Thanks yall!

Sam, we don't have bees yet, but I was interested in your post because I think I'd like to keep them someday.

Try a forum search for "bees" and you'll pull up a number of threads with some good info. There are quite a few beekeepers on here I think.

Let us know how things go!

Hey, Sam. I'll PM you with some info that another member sent me on buying equipment and bees. Give me a bit to find it.

Miss Prissy could you please PM that info to me also? I've been researching bees myself and I have friends that are wanting to start with bees this year.

Thanks.

Thanks all! And a special thanks to you Miss!!! I will have to check out a supplier. But I think I might try my hand at making the Bee-Hive instead of buying it.

Hi, I'm getting bees in 20 days! I just wanted to suggest to you, and everyone else, to make a Top Bar Hive (TBH). They are so easy and simple to make, and you don't need extractors, frames, foundation or any of that expensive stuff. Check out www.biobees.com, they have a really nice forum thats dedicated to the TBH.
Have a great day!

Got chickens that looks like an awesome idea! Do you have an pictures of the hive(s) you built? Are they suppose to be just as good as a regular bee-hive?
Thanks!
