a place for info on starting up, we can collect info on supply shops, people selling nucs, or queens, and mail order sites.
http://www.ickowicz-apiculture.com/ is where we get a lot of bits and peices.
when we lived near Poitiers, we went here for our equipment,
MATERIEL APICOLE DU POITOU
86230 ST GERVAIS LES TROIS CLOCH.
They have a small, but well stocked shop, and a mine of information.
There is a shop in the south, I'll ask OH where it is this afternoon, but I'm sure we can rustle up more bits and bobs in the meantime.
