Hey guys someone was asking about the price of all the equipment was and the established colony. We got all of this at Jones Bee Company in Salt Lake. It cost us approximately (I don't have the exact numbers) $400 but I will make up some of the money this year and finish it off next year by selling honey. I can make up to 300-400 dollars on a good year worth of honey. Hope this helps. Oh and by the way we will be opening the hive up today. So look for a new post.
