I made some metal "address" markers for my hives to help cut down on drifting. I dont know if they work or not but it was fun http://www.beesource.com/ubb/smile.gif I also like your hive colors Ross, they look great.
How far apart should they be kept to cut down on the robbing?
Thank's mmundy: look's great>>>>Mark
>How far apart should they be kept to cut down on the robbing?
I've seen hives right up against each other that didn't have a problem I've seen then a couple of feet apart and they did have a problem. I moved them another couple of feed apart and the problem went away. It depends on the bees, the flow, etc.
