Our Equipment

What we’re starting out with, hive-wise:

2 Dadant hives,  8 frame medium boxes (5 boxes per hive) Plus top covers and bottom boards
1 Rossman hive, 10 frame deep and medium (2 and 2, respectively) Plus top cover and bottom board
Bee veils, gloves, and 3 hive tools
Varroa boards (for Varroa mite testing)
5 books on beekeeping
ten pounds of Courage

Here are some images of our preparation (construction, frame preparation, and hive staining):
