Steve Victors first shipment of honeybees to the Interior of Alaska is April 12th depending on a successful trip from Sacramento, California. Beekeepers should have hives built, clean and painted before the bees arrive. I will mix up my 1:1 sugar water on Wed. or Thursday 4/9/14 or 4/10/14. All my equipment will be brought into the house on Thursday and not set outside until after the bees arrive so they are hived in a warm home. From here on out, I'll be posting updates.
