Starting 2 hives this spring. Just beginning bee keeping but my husband has been a long time bee keeper. He lost all his hives many, many years ago when Varroa first hit, then tried to get back into bees a few years ago with 4 nucs but lost them as well. So he didn't really want to try bees again, but I miss having them and miss the wonderful honey so thought I would give it a go myself. Hope all goes well. I'm really looking forward to the experience!!
