Very nice area you live in Rod. Back in the late 70 and early 80s I vacationed out there every year. We trout fished in the swan river valley. Great fishing and really fun hot spring swimming
we're pretty darn fortunate to live here....i'm a fifth generation montanan and grew up in whitefish.
"oh i'll never leave Montana, brother."
that said, i'm very clueless about all this bee stuff. i'm online looking at "starter/beginner kits"
once i get that set up i order bees and dump em in there? how do i start colonizing?
p.s. i just bought beekeeping for dummies...as used second hand copy for 5 bucks....not a bad start and i'm gonna need all the resources i can handle.
