When a homeowner buys a hive from Eco Honeybees, essentially we’re entering into a partnership with them. While we can provide a hive and the ability to service it, a hive owner HAS to assume some responsibility for the health and vitality of their hive.
Beekeeping is one of those hobbies where quick, easy, and cheap solutions don’t really exist and eventually turn more people away than draw people in. Some consumers enter the hobby by purchasing a package of bees and then a single incomplete hive or inexpensive “nuke”, a smaller 5 frame starter hive, to break into the hobby in a cost effective way to see if they like it. These temporary housings are just that, temporary, and are meant for a short time housing unit. They are not intended for permanent housing.
