 I'm a new beekeeper in Eden, UT.  I started 2 weeks ago with 2 hives but ended up losing one of them from simple mistakes.  The other hive is doing well.  I'd like to order a new package and queen to try again.  How long do I have before it's too late?

Welcome...if you can find the bees, you will probably be fine over the next month or so.  It will be too late when the bees don't have enough available pollen and nectar to stock the hive and be able to survive the winter...that varies depending upon how the bloom goes and what types of sources are available in your area.  Just curious...what mistakes did you make to lose a hive?  I installed two hives and am learning as well.

Have a great and most wonderful day, love our life, health.  Cindi
