<I do>

Thanks RC, I used to think I was too anal about some things but since I've seen this post you've taken a lot of pressure off of me Wink

Looks like the consensus is to spend the winter building boxes, mostly mediums I presume.  Purchase frames in bulk.  Set a target for how many hives I plan and build out.  I assume a few nucs should be on hand as well. 

I have put out the word to several landscapers to call me for bee removal.  Cut outs and swarms are priced pretty good if local.  Then split, early and often. 

I'm not too confident I want to get into raising my own queens.  How much of a time commitment is it?  It seems to me I might be easier to purchase as many as 10 queens from a reputable dealer and keep them on standby.  (That is if you can keep a queen hiveless for 90 plus days).

bakeries, grocery bakeries, Costco bakeries, & donut shops all have 3 & 5 gallon buckets for free & they are food grade. the 3 gallon buckets seem to be more plentiful but 5's can be had. you can't beat the price.

it's in a glass jar with a vented lid so it should be safe from mice. i put it in the basement. around late February i'll stick it in the fridge so it doesn't emerge too early. last spring one of 2 swallowtails that i had kept all winter emerged too early to release. it was 20* degrees outside at the time. i put it on a house plant but it did not survive.

Hi I am a new Beekeeper, this year.  Interested in natural beekeeping.  I grow organic veggies and hope to raise bees in a similar manner.
