Hello all. I'm a new beekeeper here in the foothills west of Denver. I'm starting with two five frame nucs from Zia in New Mexico. One from Italian stock, the other from Carniolan. Both have been in their Bee Max Polystyrene hives for just over a week. All seems to be going well at this point and I'm planning to attend the next meeting of the High Land Beekeeping Club.
