    I get units of 1x6 doug fir and the actual thickness is 3/4 which is plenty enough. 5/4 is extra weight. Did our own copper dipping but switched to parafin.

    Re: Moving Hives from CO to CA

    If you are doing business in California and your truck is over 10k you are required to have a CA number. Where did you find that the USDOT overrides CA number?

    Take it easy Harry. Sometimes you got to bend the rules. Dont tell me you don't haul 3 high from holding yards to orchard? I worked with the big boys 4k operations. I know how its done.

    Re: Moving Hives from CO to CA

    Harry, if I remember correctly the truck was a f650 and had a trailer of 10k. That automatically means he had to have a CDL. My truck is under 16k.

    Re: Moving Hives from CO to CA

    My f350 takes 96 hives without problem so don't see why 64 would be problematic. First time I took bees to California, I had 72. Hauled them with a tundra and 16ft trailer. at 180/hive its worth it.

    Get those hives out of there before the inspector robs your honey and brood. Don't trust an inspector unless you know them well.

    Re: Shallows vs Deeps for honey

    We use Deeps, mediums, and three quarter supers for honey. Personally prefer the three quarter but really doesn't matter which box when the flow is on and the money is flowing in.
