Honeybees Arrive One Month From Today!!
Beekeepers who have ordered from Steve Victors of Alaska Wildflower Honey will receive their beloved honey-producers exactly one month from today on 4/13/13 or 11 days later on 4/24/13. Preparations: Be sure you have a beesuit and it wouldn't hurt to purchase your sugar at this time. I buy 25 or 50 lb. bags from Costco in Anchorage or Sam's in Fairbanks. Remember the ratio is 1:1. Sugar water will mold if you mix it too far in advance so wait to mix it. You could also purchase a spray bottle for your hiving. They are $0.99 at Home Depot (standard) - You don't need a Catalac for a spray bottle! Pollen patties will be available for sale when you pick-up your bees.
