I have been on here and posted a few times but didn't interduce myself. I had bees in the 70's and 80's (4 hives) until a bear destroyed them one spring.I didn't start up again until last spring with two packages on new foundation. Now I have them fenced in with an electric fencer. I want to expand again to 4 or 5 hives. I have the hive bodies and frames that were in storage still in the same condition years ago.So far my new bees are still alive and heavy.I hope for the best.
