Adopt-A-Hive – New Bees For A Local Beekeeper

Rich contacted me a while back regarding getting some bees for his empty hives as his bees didn’t make it through Winter. Instead of buying packaged bees he wanted to try out some feral bees as they are more accustomed to our local environment.

He brings home the Stanford Alvarado colony that has a new queen that emerged last month from a queen cell. The colony is about 6 medium frames full with brood, honey, and all the goods. Thanks Rich for adopting this healthy colony of honeybees!
