What would you do?
The guy I am getting my packages from is going to Ca. end of the month to move his bees. He is planning on bringing my packages end of April. He offered to take a couple of my boxes and set them up there,when he goes so I get a month headstart of when i would have got the packages here. Should be like getting a couple nucs instead of packages. I did want to hive the packages since I've never done it before, but I like the idea of having comb and brood etc already started when i get them. Not sure what to tell him. Which would be the best for a new guy with no experience?
