I was one of the novices from the bee school who lost their colony in the cold weather. I have since received a new package from Andy along with a new queen supplied by Mike. I really appreciate the generosity and patience shown me by Andy, Mike and all of the beekeepers in the Willamette group. Harry helped me over the phone and Gordon gave me some advice at the bee meeting. I didn't get the name of the woman who worked so hard at getting us more bees, but will try to find and thank her as well. By the way, the new bees are doing just fine.
