    First post, from NorthEast, Nebraska. I have 2 hives and 1 nuke, all made it through the winter.
    Will have to split one hive and getting 2 more hives in a week.
    Glad to be here.

    Started with packages last year, had lots of trouble keeping queens for some reason superceded and re-maid own queens. Then I had a really strong Hive so I stole a few frames and started a nuc, and overwintered it in my back yard. It made it!
    I am getting a couple established hives from a commerical bee keeper, who is bringing them home from Texas next week. I think 8 frames and a feeder is in the deal? Actually my buddy lined this up He has two hives also and He wanted a few more so he is taking 10 hives and I am taking two. I am going to SPLIT my strongest hive as I checked it Yesterday and it has 15 frames of Bees. I want to wait a week as it is suppossed to be cold next week, but want to split it. So I will end up with 5 hives and a nuc, and/or six hives if I make that nuke into a full blown Hive.
