    We run 10 frame deeps with 6 5/8 supers for honey. That's the way grandpa did it so we continued to do it that way. Easy to pull 6 5/8 all day. All deeps may be the way to go in some areas but down...
  3. Re: How hard is it on a hive to make the migration to California from the east coast?

    Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Beekeeping is farming. Risk is involved in everything we do. We have noticed that we lose more hives after a honey flow than we do shipping them across the...

    Re: 2015 orange bloom Florida.

    Moved some this morning as well. Amazed to be able to smell bloom when it was below freezing temps just a few hours earlier. Might be a short, strong flow when it gets warm in the next few days. No...

  14. Re: Economics of pollination for distant beekeepers

    Cost us around 14k from Florida to ship. The Citrus greening and loss of grove acreage has pushed us to start playing the California game. The honey is just not there in the groves anymore. Maybe a...

    I was able to tour their facility 2 weeks ago. Definitely a slick operation based on fantastic marketing. They buy their flutes by the pallet from France. They have a "Reserve Tupelo" for sale in the...

    Re: Hive bodies

    Shastina has so far been the best quality and price over everyone else. I like the top frame rest joint that they use. Last order I had maybe 3-4 sides that were warped out of 800 boxes.

    Re: 2015 orange bloom Florida.

    Warm weather in January = long drawn out scattered bloom susceptible to a late cold snap. Not looking like a great Orange Crop in the future. Hope I am wrong.

    Re: Flatbed Build Ideas

    Just bought a new 2015 f550. It wasn't to bouncy with no bed so I believe you are right. Aluminum probably wouldn't be to bad. The price difference would be about $1700. I decided this morning on...

    Bringing this thread back for one more question. Aluminum or steel? I am worried that a aluminum bed may be to light and when you drive around unloaded it would bounce really bad because a F550 has...
