I'm getting my first hive next week and as it's coming into winter I imagine I should wait until spring to get some bees.
I am hoping my hive being ready will naturally attract some bees to start a little colony but if it remains empty.. When it the best time to get bees?
I know I can wait for swarm season or I can buy a queen with some workers online.
Any recommendations much appreciated 🙂
I started a beekeeping course in January but we went into lockdown one week before our first practical session and it has been rescheduled for next january now
