With out insulting me to bad, was wondering what to expect when taking hives to almond. This will be my first year. I only have 25 hives, 8 frame doubles. Im already working with a beebroker. I started keeping bees in 04 as a hobby never cared to rent out my hives. For some reason I got the bug in Jan 08, so I have to try it. Anyway I read your guys threads all the time. For some reason it doesnt sound fun. But I want to try it. Any recommendations? Words of wisdom? Any help? Thanks!
