Ok i ordered my bees from this website: http://www.buckeyebee.com/price.html
Cost me Total of $75 for 1 package of bees which will include 3 pounds of Italian Bees and 1 Queen. ( non marked :( )
Before ordering i asked the salesperson on the phone about the package and how they ship it, he explained that the bees will be at my house by friday, that the queen is in a separate cage, with a couple of worker bees.
Can some people tell me if they ordered the bees from that site before, tell me more about them , how was their experiance Buckeye Bee.
Now i have to find out how to properly install my new package of bees. Please provide me with a website where i can read the instructions, or give me your advice on how to do it.
I have a couple of questions.
1. If it rains, should i wait see if the weekend is better and do it while its sunny? I heard u have to do it later on the day right before sunset ( so bees don't have to fly that day and get to know their queen)
2. I live in Bergen County New Jersey, should i be concerned about the laws here about bees? if they are any laws against bee keeping.
3. Where is the best place to put my hive, i have a long 6 foot fense on one side of my backyard ( i think its best if i put it on that side , please confirm my decision and why. )
Hopefully this week i can take pictures of my backyard and my beehive to show you guys what iam talkin about.
Thanx alot for the help.
