    I'm buying my bees from Donald Porter from porterfarmbees.com. He is located in Easley SC. He came and spoke at the Mid-State Beekeeping Assoc. He is a great guy and loves to talk about beeking. His phone number is on his website and if you are interested you should call him. He talked to me for approx. 2 hours. I liked his honesty and work ethic... He said he would replace any queen that dies even if it meant him coming to your house to do it. He is a member of the USDA Russian bee breeders Assoc. If you are not a member of the Mid-State Beekeeping Assoc. you should join. They are having a beginners course starting in Jan. it's $40 and it covers the membership to both the local and state Assoc. and all the materials for the course.

    Good luck.

    Developed? Born w/ one, I believe. Just can't get BBQ like that in NY. I used to love the BBQ in Wmsbg, VA. But I don't live there anymore. So SC BBQ is my favorite kind.

    welcome to beekeeping. Wish you luck with the Russians. I started with ten hives of Russians. This is a great forum with loads of valuable info.
    "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink"...well that horse ain't got nothing on a bee.
