Re: How much do you have wraped up in your hobby?
Less than $1000 if you don't count my fencing. But I spent oh, about $1200 on fencing to keep the bees safe from harm and the neighborhood safe from the bees. There were other benefits to the fencing. Well I forgot that first $300 that was a total waste. I want to say less than $1500 though, plus the fence. I'm at 5 hives and they are "robust".
Live and learn. EFB vaniquished and sterilized. Harvested honey. Waiting for the new year. Trying to keep them alive.
