As a new beekeeper, I started out with 3 hives last year and lost 1 over the winter. My other two hives seem to be doing really well but I have more drones laying. Where can I purchase queens this time of the year?
Also, what do you guys use for hive beetle control? I can already tell that they are going to be a pain this year. I've tried the beetle traps but they only catch a few here and there.
