Only kidding. I agree actually - if you pay a fair price you are more likely to get a decent product.Bit brutal? LOL
Not me actually. I want quality at a reasonable price. Saw something good today, very tasty.. but more on that later...
buy the best brood box you can afford as bees live in it 24/7, talk to Hivemaker or Tom bick on here, but by all means start with a B on B as in your second year onwards you will really need a second hive for swarm control though certain swarm controls like a "demarre" you just need an extra brood box and a lot of effort, that can be when yu buy your 24/7 brood box ( if your bees survive you in your first season)Hi
Does anybody have any experience of or purchased any of the the "bees on a budget " equipment offered by Th**nes. Is it worth considering for a novice looking to set up?
