It depends on if you are in Finland or Florida. Please update your profile location.

get an observation hive that has openings for reaching bees.  mine is designed just for taking bees out for apitherapy.  you might not be able to populate it this year, but see about getting one for next year.

I like Kathy's suggesting of a observation hive.  But if that is not practical for you, you can keep nucs in the basement.  Although not ideal for the nuc,  it would work for your needs.

it's just a regular observation hive with small ports that can be opened to grab a few bees.  i'll look for pics, but the glare makes it hard to get good ones.

My uncle and I were talking about sting therapy last night and while we are on the subject, kinda, he said that he heard somewhere that bees who forage buckwheat regularly have more potent venom than bees that do not forage buckwheat.  Any truth to this?  I've never heard of this before but I don't really know much about the sting therapy.

Thanks.
