Hi all, my name is Bruce and my wife is Chris and we live in Garland, Me. and although we have kept bees for nearly 20 years, we still can't seem to get it right. We did have our best honey crop ever last year in a difficult summer but it seems that our bees did not survive this winter........again. We now think we would like to try 4.9 bees and have many questions about that. So we hope to use you all as another knowledgeable resource.
