Is it a number of colonies or your primary income. I have been messing around with the insects for a couple of years now and would like to get to0 100 or 200 hives. Is anyone willing to share some of your budget rule of thumb with me. thanks in advance. Intially if I could look at it as cost per 100 hives with possible income strategies. As most of the local boys seem all over the board. I have a opportunity to purchase 25 ten frame new boxes, with 8 frame guarantee for 115. The idea being to split and get to 100 colonies by season end. Sounds pretty good but what would the cost be to add equipment and supplies and does anyone have some examples. I understand if I am asking to much info. but the old saying goes your miss 100 % of the shots you don't take. Much appreciated for any positive direction from the group Is the example above possible?
