Thank you for answering all my questions, visiting to check my bees and providing professional care. My husband is thankful also because he doesn't want to go near them.
It was really nice meeting you all today. Thanks for your help. Will be in touch for those feeders!

From Tammy Horn:
Hi beekeepers, association leaders, and other friends of pollinators:
Below is today’s headline from Bee Culture’s “Catch the Buzz”! It’s too late for me to include in the newsletter, but it’s another tool in the box for varroa mite control.
Oxalic Acid registered as a varroa mite control
Over 250 letters were received by EPA when we asked for beekeeper input. The response was overwhelmingly positive and EPA, working with Canada’s Regulatory organization feels Oxalic Acid, when used in accordance with label instructions, is safe for bees, beekeepers and the environment. It will be available to treat packages, colonies as an additive to sugar syrup or as a fumigant.
Packages for April 10th are sold out, Still have packages available for April 24 or 25 2015 pickup
Jack and James, provided much needed help in my first year of beekeeping. Because of their guidance, my girls have thrived through their first winter and have come out healthy and happy -well, happy most of the time ;0) I bought two packages last spring and by later this month, through splits, I will have 5 healthy and thriving hives. Jack has taken the time personally visit my hive site for inspections, to teach me how to retrieve swarms, let me participate in doing a cut out, and often checks in with me to see how my girls are doing and to see if I have any problems or questions. From packages, nucs and equipment to helpful advice and hand on guidance, Jack and James are the best around!
We are a father son team that have been beekeeping for 10 years.
