I am thinking it is time that I should put in an order for Package bees so as to ensure that I get them in time for next season.
I have two hives and am wondering what amount I should get for each hive? A 3 pound package?
Also where would be a good place to order them from? I have heard that someplace's that sell packages also contain SHB,so I want to stay away from Iffy places like that.
Or do you think it would be best to pick them up myself?
I live about 2 hours(give or take) from Glory Bee Food Inc. which is located in Eugene Oregon and could make the trip up there to pick them up and also notice they have a live demonstration on how to start a hive with packaged bees which would be a plus.
I mention GBF as they seem to be a well known source for Beekeeping supplies.
There are a few sources over in the valley by Redding that I could drive over to as well but they dont have a website only a phone number.
Anybody in my neck of the woods know of anyother places to check out?
One more quick question.
I have no where to store my hives for the winter except for on the stand outside where they will be when the Bees arrive.
Is it ok to do this? Or will I have problems doing this?
