    Yeah, winter in Georgia would be mild compared to say, New England. Then your biggest worry will be varroa. The best beeks stay out of their colonies unless they have a specific reason to be in them.

    For those interested, Canada's UoG research center is one of the better ones in N. America. They have a series of videos on the husbandry of bees. Very interesting stuff.

    when I was young we used to catch the really large white face bumble bees; they do not sting.

    We would take a healthy length of sewing thread & wrap it around the bee, and it would fly around like a kite; that is until it ran out of power. :21:
