Bee yards in Florida and Virginia. Very little honey this year. If it were just one location that was lacking, I could understand, but two? That is concerning.

My rooftop hive:
President, San Francisco Beekeepers Association
Our setup in our new home, we moved here in late August. I took this shot right after we got the fence set up.
So far, so good. 10 colonies were doing cleansing flights last week, and we have had reports of a sow and 2 cubs sniffing around a month after this was put in place, the fence did it's job.
Here are our hives. We are at just under 7700' elevation in the forest. The electric fence is for bears. The small solar lights give just enough backlighting to the hives at night so we can see if any bears are out there misbehaving! Hives 1 and 3 are new colonies this year.
