    Default Too late to start a hive in Northern KY?

    I have one hive. This is also my first attempt at beekeeping. I want to start a new hive. Is it too late to get a new hive going for the winter?

    Thanks

    I think that you have plenty of time to get one started. I live about 30 to 45 mins away from Kentucky and I am still making nucs out of my hives. We still have a long way to go before Old Man Winter comes back again. Are you starting with a nuc or a package?
    Good Luck,

    Not too late. If you can, find a local beek who's selling nucs. But even with a package you should have plenty of time.

    Sure you will have time. I am getting my nucs today, its not too late in the season. Go for it
    If it isn't broken, don't try to fix it. If you build it, they will fill it.
