Hi! I am making plans for keeping bees for the first time. I have joined the local beekeeper's classes and am looking forward to learning as much as possible. I will be keeping TBHs. The bee classes do not teach about TBH and so far I have not found anyone in class who keeps them. I am glad to be part of this forum and have enjoyed reading a great many posts. I know this will be a loaded question but here goes, Should I treat them with FumigilinB upon recieving packaged bees? I really want to keep them as untreated as possible but also realize they may not be very strong right away to fight off Nosema due to the stess they will have gone through. Any advice regarding the keeping of TBH will be carefully considered and appreciated.
