    Default Hello from Oklahoma

    Just got my first hive thanks to a cut out. Luckily for me I have family beeks that got the call and knew I was wanting to start. They even started me a nuc to work on at the same time. Looks like lots of sugar ahead, any and all tips greatly appreciated. Oh yeah I have only been zapped 2 times in 5 days!!!!!

    Welcome, keep those stings coming. Is there nothing natural growing for them to feed on there?

    No, unfortunately we are really getting dry out here, some weeds flowering and the shumack is on if they gather pollen off it? We are waiting on the goldenrod but it is a terrible time I am told to try and staret a hive. Also absolutely no honey stores in the comb we recovered.

    Hi there !
    I am in southwest ok.,(altus) and the nettles are in full bloom down here even in the heat. Cotton is also in bloom and bees are working like crazy. Lots of pollen and i assume nectar since they have filled two deeps and working on a med. Super.
