I lost my honey bees due to excessive smoke caused by the fires in California and Oregon . I am trying to get the honey bees started again next year. I have the hives just need to buy packages of bees with the queen. A
Hive consists of 20,000 - 30,000 bees in the winter and over 60,000 - 80,000 bees in the summer and only 1 queen bee per hive she lays up to 2000 eggs per day. Bees maintain 93 degrees Fahrenheit in the center of the winter cluster regardless of the outside temperature. Agriculture depends greatly on the honeybee for pollination. Your help is greatly appreciated by me and the bees Thank You.
