    Don't bother, local markets where your honey is sitting on the shelf with cheap Chinese honey is not a great place to sell. Build your own brand by selling to people who understand the merits of...

    Re: collecting bees at night

    I would do what everyone else suggested, set a box with some frames over them and let them walk in. They don't care if its day or night, actually night is better because they will all be in one spot....

  7. What is everybody charging for package bees this year

    I have seen prices all over the place on packages from $85 to $125. I am in Kentucky and I'm sure it varies from region to region. Just trying to get a handle on what everybody is charging.
