I just bought a Flow Hive, but I am not quite sure how to take care of bees and could use some help or advice.

We are glad you asked. Setting up the Flow Hive may be fun, but actually installing your bees is when it gets truly exciting! But the installation is just the start. There is a lot to learn and we are here to help. Some important things to consider are posted on the Maryland State Beekeeping website. Perhaps the most important step is to learn, learn, and learn some more. To that end, we offer a short, three Saturday class in January where you will get an excellent start in what will hopefully be a long and rewarding endeavor.
