WTF is this? who would even?? HAAHAHAHAHA
If you build it, they will come?
I’ve been wanting to raise bees for the past several years, at least that has been my plan... And, what do you know, on MASSDROP, of all places, I come across BEEHIVES!! I’m in on this ‘drop for 3 of them!!! Oh, and BTW, I’m allergic to bee stings!! May the Gods of Bees be kind to me, for I promise to nurture and take care of one of the most important living things we have on the planet!!
Take it from Susanna: "You only call when you want money And when I need you you're not there Everybody else has written you right off You make it hard to care You're pretty hard to bear Women think that you're a genius 'Til you get caught for who you are I reeled you in and you ate me half alive You were a future star Who do you think you are? No good deed will go unpunished, oh oh oh And no beekeeper goes unstung And these boots are made for walkin' They're walking back to you What else can I do? I know you know that you're good lookin' And you're not known for too much else I took you in and you left me half a live Don't know what you do Or who you do it to When I'm gone someone will save you When she gets tired there's always someone new I reeled you in and you ate me half alive You were a future star Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are? I reeled you in and you ate me half alive You were a future star Who do you think you are? No good deed will go unpunished, yea yea yea No beekeeper goes unstung And these boots are made for walkin' I'm walkin' back to you What else can I do? Oh no no (oh no no) Walkin' back to you (walkin' back to you) Oh oh oh, walkin' back to you (walkin' back to you) (I'd do it all again, I'd do it all again) with you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=if6ieh6D0zU

Does this need to be painted? Im tempted in starting to keep bees but im not sure about this kit. 95 seems like it is a great price

Yup, it needs to be painted on the outside only with outdoor paint preferably. If you don't the wood with weather and not last.
I don't know that the size is that big of a problem. There are advantages to keeping several hives going...even for a small operation. Odd for Massdrop, maybe, but some of us live out in the country.
...why.

Perhaps some people consider it... A hobby...
Maybe even someone wants to have their own honey...?

Where do I hire some bees?

Check your local classifieds for bees. Seriously. There are active apiaries all over the country and I've talked with tons of beekeepers who are passionate about keeping bees and teaching others.
Hi All,
We have notified you that the main items in this bundle have been shipped out early however due to a warehouse error our vendor has let us know the J-Hook and Brush are due to ship on the expected ship date, 8/1/2018. Please do not be alarmed if you are missing these 2 items in your packages, they are on the way!
Cheers,
I think this is now the most hipster item I've ever seen on Massdrop, Yall keep 1-upping yourselves every year.

People have been keeping bees way before "hipster" was ever a term that was thought of... Farmers keep bees to pollinate their fruit trees, for starters.
I think it's awesome. I've been wanting to get into bee keeping for a couple years now. This might make it happen.
Is this the same Vivo that makes Monitor mounts and peripherals? Thats an odd range of products... I guess you gotta diversify somehow?

Beekeeper here: the Vivo brand is definitely marketed for beginners. Friend and I use their 2 frame extractor and while it does get the job done, it leaves much to be desired. This setup doesn't seem too bad though.

Good to know, and not unexpected from a company known for computers.
This is great. I‘m a beekeeper, and it thrilled to see beekeeping gear on Massdrop.
Its been a little while since I’ve purchased wood ware, so I can’t comment on the pricing.
It’s a gratifying hobby, though, if you’re so inclined.

Pricing is better than what I'm seeing at the local feed stores. Shipping may make it about the same but it's delivered to your doorstep.
Not a hobby I have the space in my life to pick up right now, but I think it's awesome that this is on Massdrop. Weird, but awesome. Let's see more of this sort of thing!
I can only assume this is because it's the same company that makes a lot of the monitor mounts that are featured here. They also make cotton candy machines apparently, what weird product lines.
My father successfully got into beekeeping a couple years ago, and this set looks like it really does have everything one would need to get into it. Not sure on the pricing, but it looks good.

Pricing is meh (not bad, not good) - but if you are even marginally successful this is very small; your hive will outgrow a single deep in a month to 6 weeks.

I know some beekeepers that force their brood to one deep all the time. They can get more honey that way but it takes more management as the bees can get kinda 'swarmy' in those conditions constantly.
Where do you source the bees from?
rdodev
Finding bees is easier than you think. Many local farms sell nucs, if you're not in a good location for that believe it or not ebay sells packages of bees with a queen
This is probably the oddest thing I've ever seen on Massdrop lol

Beat me to it lol
