I am seriously considering taking up beekeeping as a hobby. Right now I live in southern Ontario, Canada but I am looking at getting a job in the north, near Thunder Bay (just north of Minnesota USA). My question is this - can I start hives here and ship them north? It is about 20 hours drive. I probably will not be getting settled until the summer, and I am worried that starting a hive that late might lessen their chances at surviving the harsh winter temps. Thanks for any help, Glen.
