    I planted sunflowers this weekend, so does that count in reference to bees coming soon? [​IMG]

    I have two hives to fill. Where is the best place to order bees? I went to order them, but everyone wanted them to be picked up. Does anyone near Indiana ship them to you? Thanks

    I got hundreds of bees buzzing in my maple trees that are budding. I'm not a big fan of stinging insects. We don't get along [​IMG]

    I have two packages coming from Rossman Apiaries. They are due first week of May. I ordered mine the first week in January. Bees are selling like chickens this year. Order early or if you are lucky you may find a local beekeeper with nucs to sell.
