The quickest and easiest way to start in backyard beekeeping is to buy a complete hive with bees and queen.
Price for a complete hive is $350.
This includes the floor, an 8-frame Langstroth body, a roof, bees and one queen.
This full hive was raised in northern California, in Bay area near San Francisco.
You will recover your complete hive in May.
Your hive is already ready, the only action is to open the door once the hive is in the final location.
As soon as the door is opened, your bees will start to forage for the flowers of your garden.
