Re: Found these in a barn--What are they? Need help with ID
just think though, you can look at those hives and consider how much things have changed. When those hives were last used they probably gave a good crop. Back at the likely time, there was more plant diversification. No varroa mites, no SHB, little AFB, no CCD, no treatment debate, no internet.
So we can wonder. Have we made the world better?
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
