For any prospective new beekeepers who want to obtain bees for this year, it's wise to secure a nucleus colony early and there are always only limited supplies in spring of overwintered colonies until this years queens become available which is often not until June.
And if the winter weather proves difficult there will be existing beekeepers who want to re-stock once they realize that their own bees have not all survived.
