Looking to start a few new hives this spring. For those of you in Northeast Kansas, what would be the earliest date that you would attempt to install packages?

Thank you

I'm at the same latitude as you except in the front range at an elevation of 6,800 ft. I'll be installing two 3# packages near the end of the first week of April this year. I installed one at that time of last year with no problems. Be sure to feed them 1:1 sugar syrup and pollen patties immediately, and until your dandelions and local nectar flow starts, and don't let them run short of food.
