Re: How many hives is too many hives?
Kirk, Two answers I can recall seeing.
1. somewhere in the neighborhood of 20.
2. keep adding hives until you see a decline in the colonies in general. then reduce by one or two.
As far as I know nobody has a number of hives you can keep in any location.
how many bees could you keep in the locations below. one is less than two hours from me. the other 6 hours away.
