how about these?
ok you got me thinking.
What do you do with it when you get it back, and how does it come?
What is the market/price for rendered wax?
I am interested too, so if I want to load up 100 double deeps to pollinate somewhere, how much weight am I talking? 7,000+ lbs?
Hopefully enough to support 500 hives is our goal. Right now our business is in this 6500 sq ft building, but we are only using the front 4000 sq ft right now.
For future planning,
Will 2000 sq ft do it?

There were several others too
like this guy?
I am seeing tons of small white clover, and the bigger purple clover everywhere, not to mention all the wildflowers.
I had to add extra supers yesterday as they were still filling.
Does all areas go through a dearth?
I am still seeing flowers everywhere here in Iowa, with no sign of falling off anytime soon.
Buy a box, goto UPS and see how much it cost to ship it back and you will have your answer.
I have a hive I split this spring, and the queen didnt make it.
The last couple of months I have probably added 8 more frames of brood in hopes they would hatch their own, well I must not of...
I moved four hives to a new home about 100 ft away. The area I moved them from had a few thousand bees flying around pissed off.
Will the find their way over, or did I just kill them all?
Has anyone thought about 3d printing honey comb onto their frames? PLA is made from sugar & has a sweet smell, so I thought it may work well.
Really it depends on your goals, and time.
If you want to just expand a few more hives, and it is fairly close to home, put a couple more out. I would come up with some type of simple written...
Keep adding supers, and mix in undrawn frames, keep them busy drawing out frames, filling them, and give them lots of room
heck ya, that is what I did last year
Fo you you big boys out there, how do you find safe places to put 1000 hives in the summer?
How many hives to a good location? Are there that many landowners out there that will let you places...
So what there an outcome to this story?
Last year our first hive produced a ton of honey, but I left it all on to make sure they got through the winter.
We harvested & bottled up our first 50 lbs last night, it was a great experience.
I am looking for another location for a bee yard. No one is going to just let me put 20-30 hives up for free with open access.
So what do you pay for bee yard rent in a good location?
Looking forward to starting my second year of beekeeping.
Year one had its ups & downs.
Started with two packages, package one did incredible, package two lost its queen right away and never...
Should I start feeding pollen now to get the queen laying?
Weather is supposed to be in 40's here on out.
you can buy the rosa rugosa online at nursery. It hasnt been sold as much lately as it is considered an invasive plant that spreads & grows very quickly.
But how late into the fall will they keep bringing it in?
