zoobie, it took me three days to track down the address of a bee vendor we are very happy with. If your email address is real, I'll send the address there. If not, keep checking back here until I can get it posted.

We're new at beekeeping, and it's been really fun. The bees we have are so gentle that our small children sit safely a few inches from the hive and watch what's going on. My husband does wear gloves and a bee hat when he has to open the hive, but he says they've never offered to sting him. They were making more bees within a few days of arrival. They're making wax comb and honey already, and we're in drought. You need to stock a whole bunch (like, 200 pounds) of sugar so you can feed them over the winter. The ratio of sugar to water is high -- I'll find out and post that too.
