    Wow! I get wood for $0.85 a foot, bees in trees for free. There is 20 BF in a hive.
    I could let them build wild comb, but I splurge and get Pierco for $0.86 a sheet by the case in a pallet.
    The 9/3 extractor is my only expense at just over $400.
    $16 for a veil and $12 for a tall smoker, hive tools are $1 by the thousand.

    About $400 more than half of that gear such as a couple of jackets 3 veils two smokers a queen excluder and other tools. a fair share of the other half was for foundation. 4 hives all still doing well so far. still got Feb to survive though. I made my own woodenware including frames with the exception of about 70 frames I bought when first starting.
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.

    Removals have made me money from day one, so I'm ahead and not out anything but my time.

    Guessing on the low side probably 10 hours a week x 3 years = 1,560 hours.
