I ordered two 3 pound bee packages that will arrive some time on March 25th. They are coming up in a truck from Georgia. We’ll all be waiting for him in the parking lot of the Palisades Mall. The price is good ($80 each). I spoke to Adam Fuller of AZ Apiaries on the phone and he seems like a good guy.
If you want bees, order NOW because the truck is almost full.
I have two hives now, but one probably won’t make it. I have another hive box for the hive that already died. I have a spare hive box. This is a total of 4. If both hives that are alive now make it through the winter I will have 4 hives.
