Description

In section 2 of our series on the Introduction to Beekeeping we will cover what it takes to get started in this amazing hobby with a focus on the equipment and tools necessary for beekeeping. We will review the components of the “modern” bee hive, the tools used by beekeepers, and demystify the seemingly countless number of paraphernalia available for the hobbyist beekeeping.

In addition we will discuss the proper locations for beehives and explain Florida’s rules and guidelines.
