What all goes into getting bees?
Hey everyone! New here, but I've been doing a lot of research on bees, as I want to get some. Most of what I find online is really technical, so I figured I'd come here and ask. What all goes into beekeeping? How many hives should I start with? What do I need to look out for? How much will it cost? What kind of maintainence do they need? Any advice to someone new to beekeeping?
Thanks! If it matters, I live in the northeast US.
