Back in the bees
« on: May 17, 2013, 11:52:36 AM »
After losing my 3 hives last year I wanted to replace with new.  I got a package for the first time this year, then a couple weeks later my nuc arrived.  I just got my first swarm of the season last night, so I am back to 3 hives!  Might be  kind of interesting to see how each one compares to the other this season.

Sounds like things are falling into place for you...Good Luck!

Curious, what did in your 3 hives last year?

Mites were the cause for 2 losses and moisture for the third.  I hope I have learned some things this year.
