    The attachment above will work good if you lots of time and not very many hives to handle . If you need to move a lot of hives I would buy a Hummerbee.

    Re: Paramount Farms buying out beekeepers?

    This is an interesting topic.

    Re: Inspiration to keep going

    If the above was true you can pretty much rule California out. I don't know any package producers that leave bees out of almonds so they can shake them later, other than to start cell builders early....

    Re: Inspiration to keep going

    Keeping hives healthy, strong and full of bees is as hard as it has ever been.

    Re: What kind of drums to buy?

    Open head food lined steel drums with lever rings. A lot of the new drums are light weight be careful of the light ones. Over 40 pounds with ring and lid is a good starting point.

    Good question. Wish I had an answer also.
