we live 330 miles south of our 3 acres in the woods. How often do I need to be there and when? Spring,Summer,Fall, winter??

330 miles at 15 miles to the gallon is 20 gallons of gas each way, so I want to budget for that. The weather there in January-April is FREEZING.

thanks,

My bees are very active now in my big leaf maple here in CA’s central valley. I understand that willows also provide bees with early spring feeding opportunities. I’d already planned to plant willows next to our pond for erosion control, so would you know what varieties of native CA willows might also be best suited for honey bees? Thanks.

When should I begin getting ready and start ordering supplies and bee hives. Oh, and what advice do you have for preparing myself, should I order the dvd?

I found a very large bee hive under a mobile home. I was wondering if i should move it and if so how do I go about doing this.
