My name is Gail & I live about 50k North of the Melbourne CBD in Wallan, we have 10acres about 4k out of town. I run my own buiness from home making blades for turf machinery.
We went to an alternate farming expo were my husband (who works afternoon shift) decided it would be a good idea to have some bees, so ultimatly it was left to me to care for the bees, some thing I have never done before, and boy do I need help.lol
If any one on here is from wallan or surrounding area I am looking for a mentor, there is only so much you can learn from books & DVDs. I need to requeen my hive but after spending over an hour looking I could not find her. I have just recieved a new queen how log will she live in the cage? HELP!!! please
