A few days before I got my bees I was asked if I would move to Sacramento, CA and take a new position with my company. I told them I would go even though I did not want to move right after setting up my first 4 hives. We have been waiting to find out and today I finally got news that someone else is taking the position. :-D While I would love to live in CA it would have only been a two year period and then I would have to move back...not to mention the fact that I would lose my hives.
So, I can keep my hives....and now, I can get more!
OK, here are some questions I need help with -
Are there still places to get packages? Or Nucs?
Where do you get wood to make hives? Home Depot and Lowes seem very expensive.
What kind of wood should I look for to make the boxes?
