Hi, my name is Eric and I'm from close to Hot Springs Arkansas. I joined beesource a little over a year ago and thought I was going to start a hive then, but I think it was too late in the year and could not get a response from companies to buy bees from. Just installed our first nuc yesterday, Russians from Coy's.

Welcome and hello from just up the road :)

I wanted to try some of his bees but didn't think he had any left this year.

We ordered them back in January and pickup was Yesterday in Jonesboro. Coy's had some bad weather so their order's above 1 nuc had to be cut in half so we only got one. I was very pleased with the way they conduct business and the bees are doing great.

you should join the greater hot springs beekeepers club. also. be on the lookout for another hive. you really need 2 in case you go queen less. don't overfeed, don't get robbed and try to get your bee to move up into your supers. good luck!

My wife and I are members, but Thursdays became impossible for the meetings.
