My son. Almost 6 and loves helping me w/the bees


« on: January 13, 2008, 10:22:22 AM »

I have equipment for about 3 more hives and need to requeen anyway. I purchased my hives from a beek who didn't have time to manage them his last year. I have no idea how old these 3 queens are and want to try for something more gentle anyway. I want about 6 queens and possibly a bee package to go with 3 of them.

Can anyone recommend someone nearby? I want to spend a little time with the breeder talking about why their queens are the most gentle and will wash my truck while I harvest instead of trying to beat me up.

Thanks, for any help,  Steve

Hey Don,

I forgot to ask what kind of bees you breed.

Also found Lula. Very close to where we vacation/weekend in Helen/Cleveland, GA. I should be able to visit with no problems. How early would you have queens available?

Thanks, Steve

Oh gosh, I wish I could take his organic beekeeping classes. I wish there was something like that around here.
