    Welcome! Where is Igo, north or south? Did you get local bees?

    Thanks for all the welcomes! I put the bees in on Sunday. Overnite temp. got down to 35 last night. I hope they are OK. I put in an electric fence to protect against predators, we have bears, skunks, raccoons. Not sure yet if the ants are going to be a problem, and what I am going to do about it.
