    Default Lets try this with my money this time! From NorthWestern Canada

    Hello all,

    Years ago I worked for a medium sized beekeeper (~800hives) for a few summers. Enjoyed the work and learned alot. Now, 18 years later I have decided to buy a few hives and start into the hobby, with the hope of creating some additional income. My wifes grandfather was a beek and so she's as excited as I am. Hopefully in a few years it will provide good jobs for our young 3 sons.

    I bought 2 2.2lbs packages from new zealand April 30 and they have been doing well. I have 2 Manitoba queens coming next week and plan to split both hives. Hopefully I can go into winter with 4 strong hives and come out next spring with 2 or more.

    Really enjoy the forum and looking forward to chatting with you all.

    Luke

    Welcome!

    Why not make 10 hives from the two you have and really get started? Try the Mike Palmer overwintered nuc method and start now.

    I think I have heard of that. After a quick search I found many posts discussing it. Do you know where the best full discription of the method is?

    thanks for the info and idea.
