beekeeping

Postby daddydip » Sat Jan 31, 2009 5:26 pm

does anyone else here keep a hive or have an apiary set up. with the different things that the bees are facing from the latest hive collapse disorder to varroa and the rest. i'd like to know if anyone else here on the forum had or haves working hives. it would be good if we could share experiences and what's going on around the country with each other dealing with what's going on . right now i only have the one hive, which i collected around 50lbs of honey from this yr. in the past i've maintained two small yards of three hives apiece which i've used to pollinate local orchards. i've got a full regiment of equipment from a 6 frame extractor,wax decappers,separator etc.etc. also a bunch of deep and honey supers. i plan on ordering a queen next year to start a nuc to begin my second hive. great pollinators for the fruit trees and the garden. :?: :arrow: :idea:
