hi, new to bees. living in northern nevada. currently half way thru with building 2 tbh's. reading lots of bee info everywhere. got some bees coming in 2 weeks, and picking up some locally same time period. lol, its snowing right now, couple of days ago it was 65 and sunny. im living just past the begining of nothing. some things are blooming, but guess will be feeding the bees for a while til spring really springs. so there it is. oh, nother thing, have a group of wild honey bees living somewhere below the roof of my garage. not interested in moving them mind you, but feed them by hand in the backyard when its sunny and sippin margaritas. sugar tho, no cactus juice for them! howdy to bee folks and western music lovers.
