Need advice, new/aspiring suburban beekeeper
Hi all. I am about to take my first dive into bee keeping since I was 14 years old. I remember some stuff, I worked for a USDA research station on established hives.
This will be my first time in 30 years trying to have / establish my own hive in my backyard.
Primary purpose is pollinators, but yeah.. love honey too.
So here is the question. IN GENERAL would it be a smarter move to buy an already established hive of 2 supers in basically the same geographic area as I live in OR should I buy a super and a nuc?
Both are available from reputable members of my local bee keepers society and at the end of the day both cost about the same.
