Source of Treatment Free bees in Mississippi?
I am looking for a source of treatment free bees in Mississippi. I have not kept bees in a long time and am beginning to learn about the new diseases that were not a factor back then! I am in school at Starkville MS and have a home on the MS coast. Since I am starting from scratch, I intend to use 8 frame mediums and small comb foundation in the brood section. I plan to build a 5 or 6 frame observation hive and probably one other hive initially. I have been influenced by Michael Bush recommendations for new beekeepers on his website. It just makes sense to start out with locally adapted bees and regress them if this had not already been done. Any help is appreciated.
