Hello everyone and thank you for your future welcomes to beekeeping and to this great forum. I have some experience in beekeeping as I helped a guy care for nine hives for six months over a summer long period a few years back so I have some of the basics under wrap. I live in Portland Oregon and have just today found a place where I can set up two hives of my own. My only concern is that it is to late in the year to begin hives. I have located local nuclear hives from which I intend to get started with as soon as next saturday if I get enough positive feedback on it not being too late. Thank you for any help.
