As Beekeepers, there is always sometime new to learn, and we will never learn it all. However, it is critical that you team up with others in your community who might have some of the answers. Yes, I am talking about your local Bee Association. I have talked to many people who have had a bad experience or had their feelings hurt by their local Beekeeping Association. Beekeepers, it is time to put all of that behind us. As keeping bees is getting more and more difficult, we have to put our heads together to move forward.

We chose NUCs over packages because a package has to start from the ground up. Because there is no drawn comb for the queen to lay eggs, which can take up to 5-8 days before she has a place to lay. To make matters worse, it will take another 21 days after the queen lays before new worker bees start to hatch. Because the life expectancy of a worker bee is about a month and a half to two months the bees from the package will start to dwindle for about 26 to 28 days until the first bees are hatched.
