Many people have been asking what equipment is needed when you are looking into getting a hive. First it is important to explain what you are getting. A package is typically 3 lbs of bees and a queen. Our nucs that we sell are 5 frames of the Langstroth design. They are what we consider deep frames (9 1/8 “). There will be a laying queen, 4 frames of brood, and 1 frames of honey. So onto the equipment that you need as a beginner in beekeeping!
