Hello From PA
« on: November 29, 2012, 11:53:41 PM »
Hi!

My name is Scott and I just received my shipment of supplies to start assembling for this spring. I will be starting 3 new hives in Houtzdale, PA. I plan on starting 2 packages and 1 nuc just to see the 1st year comparison. Here to learn all I can so if all goes well I can expand in my 2nd year.

Scott:

Welcome to the forum.  I started beekeeping this year with one package and one nuc.  I think you are smart to have nucs and packages.  I learned a lot from being able to compare and contrast the nuc and the package, especially since the nuc produced two more queens (one a supercedure and one to expand my apiary) and the package didn't make it past the middle of November.

Thanks, I checked out that site and it looks like a good group.  I wish I lived a little closer so I could attend some of the events. Even with the distance involved it looks like a group I will join at some point in the future.

Living where I do, you get used to driving about an hour for just about anything.

Sounds like a good plan.  Those darn bees are pretty good at throwing monkey wrenches though, so beware.  :-D
