I have been reading up and trying to find out about keeping some bees. I only
want a hive or two and hope to start next spring.There has never been any
bees kept on the family farm. I think the area near the old buildings would
be a great location. It looks like a loosing battle with all that can wrong with
them, still I want to try. This beesource site has tons of great info and thank
you to all who has shared all the great information.Think I will start with brand new hives to avoid any carry-over from used ones. I think there is a dealer near Ottawa, less than an hour from here.
