I'd like to get a beehive for my garden
I am in coastal SC, and am on the second autumn first full year in a lot on clay that as a cornfield against some wooded areas...near inercoastal waterway.
I have 3 large garden beds in front, and some smaller ones on sides..and have a half acre in back that I hope to put a pond//brook and make it a certified wildlife habitat.
I must say, I have lots of bees, the big ones...especially all over my sages...I guess they're carpenter bees and others...big honeybees?
Lest I digress, I found a website recently that sells American bees, in litttle boxes...I'd really like to get a couple and place in various locations...
Could someone buide me on this beginners path? I have no interest in hive/honey, just simply want to have lots of garden pollinators and do a good thing for my area. Are these starter boxes a good thing?
I'll click in a link to some pics of my flowers...there may be a bee picor two..if not, I can send to show you who visits me now...
Here is a link that might be useful: garden pics and more
