Hello All,

I am new to the Beemaster forum and have just moved to Giles County, VA in the Appalachian mountains. My family and I moved back home to start a farm and part of the plan was bees so we started in Chesapeake, VA (where we were living at the time) last year with two hives. We moved and had to leave the hives behind for about three weeks before I could find a farmer willing to let me place the hives on his land here in Giles Co. While we were gone SHB and wax moths destroyed both hives and we lost them as well as all the drawn comb.  The bees were on foundationless frames in mediums and were both very strong before we left. Does anyone have any nucs or hives for sale this late in the season?

Thank you!
Brent

Welcome to the forum, Brent.   cheer

Please consider changing your profile to include Giles County, VA. That way we can hopefully give you better advice (as it is winter in Australia).  -Mike

Welcome to the forum, Brent.  I have had more trouble with SHB and moths than ever this year also.  Good luck

Sorry about your bees.  That is a bummer. Sad

Beautiful country in your neck of the woods and enough elevation to escape the southern heat. 

Hey, I’ve always got bees I can sell anytime of the year, but Michigan is a pretty long trek from Blacksburg. grin  I would find a local beek in the area or check Craigslist for swarm postings.  There's plenty of bees out there.  Bees are still swarming in Michigan.

I have a few nucs 150 miles from you, but they are in deeps.
