aspiring beekeeper from southern Ontario
« on: March 01, 2013, 04:41:59 AM »
Hi!
I'm new to this forum and new to the world of bees. I've been biding my time impatiently waiting for for my first bees - 2 nucs i'll pick up some time in May!
I've learned alot from these forums over the past year, and i hope to keep learning for years to come!

Welcome to the forum, Marco.  I am sure you will keep learning, I think we all can still learn from each other and these little critters.

Hi! I'm new too (joined last week) and am in Ottawa. Where are you getting your nucs? I've ordered mine from dancing bee honey .  I wanted to post the link but because I'm new it won't let me.  You can google them.   I'm happy because they are local stock (hopefully local enough for Ottawa).   Welcome!

Thx for the welcomes!
I forgot about checking out these forums lately - been busy putting together frames and boxes!
I'm waiting for nucs from Szabo bees, just east of Guelph. There stock has been apparently locally bred for many years!
I'm getting pretty antsy for spring, and the sow thats  constantly falling around here doesn't help...

On the top right side of your post is the word "Modify" if you click on that you can go in and correct the spelling, if you want to.
