Re: new Member from San Diego County CA
Hi from the High Desert Mike, There are several places to buy packages from. All in NorCal due to the african honey bees down south here. I have a great success with CF Koehnen Cordovan Italians and Tabers Russian hybrids. The latest strategy for backyard beekeepers is two hives and a nuc going into winter. Beekeeping through attrition. Keeping nucs at the ready to recover from the high winter mortality. It is still a lot of fun beekeeping, jump on in!
