asked the woman behind the counter to buy a case, because I couldn't find them on the shelf.
she asked why so many and I told her my plans for them .
not a pet, livestock .
don't tell me you didn't eat her.
Chickens only lay for so long, the next step is in the pot.
welcome from down south, Palmyra Ind.
I agree keep it as a hive.
If the nuc is strong make a split, or let it grow another couple of weeks depending on flow there.
that way you will have 2 hives.
research (walkaway splits) (how to...
adult sent deposit, be sure that adult pay's at pickup, where did the minor do the purchase?
same problem here with a few losses.
I have a hive that is a single deep, looks like plenty of bees left with a (spacer / mountain cap)

you could mail them to me, I know what to do.
If you are looking for a brood break , you are doing a walk away split anyway.
why spend money on it, they will produce their own queen for free.
if there is no one near you.
be sure to start with 2 hives that way you will have the resources, to increase the chances of survivability.
just keep reading on here to learn more, but...
they can go any direction with it .

shouldn't be much of a problem finding the bees in Georgia.
I believe that's where most of them (packages) come from for us northern keepers.
first year for me so nothing proven yet, bought a package , caught a swarm and one cutout I now have 7 hives.
not enough honey this year to rob, but I did make a few increases.
1st found a queen...
I don't know about sight , maybe scent.

I've been getting the foundationless frames , they have a v cut on the bottom of the top bar and solid bottom bars.
lets see, no where near the school (throwing distance)
not white and shrubs was a great idea.
I'd be thinking a top bar.
near the house or a shed, no one would know what it is.
always could use more hives, mini vacation to Missouri in the spring would be nice also.
I went foundationless on wooden frames is the best deal I have seen,be sure to wire them if your going to extract and they draw it out pretty quick and put drones where they want them.

go ahead and move them now, just be sure to put something in front of the entrance (limb with a few leaves , ornamental grass )they will reorient pretty quick .
