Very interested but still doing research
I’m very interested in getting into beekeeping but have a few questions…some that may be painfully stupid but I want definitive answers from people in the bzzz.
1) I live in ny, how do I go about starting? Where can I get bees?
2) Is it necessary to get a bee suit? (I’ve seen videos of people moving bees with their bare hands and others fully suited) so what constitutes one situation or the other.
3) How time consuming is this on a daily basis. Do you need to be checking on them daily, does it take 10 minutes a day or few hours a day.
I’d greatly appreciate any feedback!!
