Hello, and welcome to the Flow forum! :blush:

You are probably a bit late in the season in your part of the world, but @JeffH might have some ideas for you. He is about an hour away from you, so perhaps further than you would want to transport bees, but he is a really good beekeeper.

Please continue to ask questions, and we will try hard to help you! :wink:

Hi & thank you Dawn :slight_smile:

Hi @Linda_Paterson & welcome to the forum. I can certainly help you with getting started. It could be worth the 1 hour drive. I’m only charging $140 for a good 5 frame nuc placed into your brood box.

PS. For what it’s worth, it’d be worthwhile paying extra to get your brood box full of bees & brood etc., so that the bees will start on the honey frames a lot sooner, rather than later. Bearing in mind that we normally get a honey flow between now & our mild winters.
