Looking for Michigan bees

(1/1)

Flint:
I am looking to to start 4 hives in the spring , like to get bees from Michigan if I can. Anyone know of Michigan bees for sale?

sawdstmakr:
Flint,
The best bees are the FREE feral bees you catch in your swarm traps. Make up a few. A deep box makes a good swarm trap if placed about 6 feet off the ground. Don't place them too high, they can get very heavy very quickly in a good flow.
