Hey,
Im brand new to beekeeping and thought it would be a fun hobby. So far I have built my hives and yesterday ordered my frames, suit, smoker, ect. Now I just need bees. Apparently im way behind on getting a pacakge ordered. Im located in Arkansas near Ft Smith (west central). I dont mind driving a few hours for bees but seems everyone is out and Jester is on the other side of the state. Any ideas? thanks
