Last year I decided to look seriously into starting a few hives but found it was a little late into the season to start. Since I’ve spent my time visiting this site, reading the prescribed books, and I am now looking forward to getting my packages in April. Lady Luck has shone upon me too. A friend has a “bee Tree” that fell in a storm around Thanksgiving who’s occupants need to be collected when the weather turns so the yard clean up can be completed. Hopefully I’ll get started with three hives.
