BIP: HiveCheck Results for Feb 23-Mar 9

Bee Informaed Partnership    By Alex Jones    March 17, 2015

Looking ahead to another season it’s always interesting to start polling where beekeepers are sourcing their colonies. Our WordCloud for the week starts to give us a hint…there’s a lot of locally raised nuc and queen producers building followings in their communities! With packages hovering around $200 this year in some places it makes a lot of sense to make your own bees with your neighbors. For a great talk on the “Sustainable Apiary” check out this video by acclaimed beekeeper Mike Palmer. I just saw Mike give this talk at the Chester County Beekeeper Conference and it was fantastic. Make sure to take a look!
