    Posting photos directly using forum tools can be a pain. The easiest solution to to post them to a photo host and then link to them in your Beesource post.

    An easy solution is to open a free http://photobucket.com/ account, upload your photos to that site, and then link them here.

    If you want a step-by-step guide to using Photobucket and Beesource, see post #8 of this thread:
    http://www.beesource.com/forums/show...-Photo-pragram

    The thread linked above is a guide for posting links that the reader needs to click on. You can also post photos inline that display with the text. Photobucket calls that "Direct", and then you need to use the "Insert Image" button on the Beesource message toolbar. Choose the URL tab and paste the link.

    Photos are compressed to 90 kilobytes, but not loaded. The problem of my browser. IMHO

    Maximum of 2 tons. Price of $ 10 per kg. Wholesale $ 2 per kg.

    Very much competition, many beekeepers and traders.

    So, about half the price of honey here in the USA

    Ближе к теме- Лежак мне не нравится. Хотя есть только несколько 16 рамочных, так развитие в них хуже чем в 12 рамочных. Не идёт пчела в ширину, идёт в высоту, образно говоря. 24 рамочный лежак с перегородкой наверное хорош для формирования отводков (двухматочное содержание), для увеличения пасеки. ИМХО.
    Я не кочую, пасека стационар. Май- развитие, июнь, июль взяток со степного разнотравья, август- подсолнечник. В среднем получается по 70 кг с семьи. Минимум было 45 кг, сильная засуха, всё посохло. Сироп на подкормку пчёлам вообще не даю никогда. Только медовые рамки.
    Насчёт цен, разброс очень большой, зависит от региона, сорта мёда, кто как может так и продаёт.
    I asked
    Woody Prickly about difference between long-hives and hives he is using in Russia (not Lang). There is my approximate translation of his respond.

    He thinks that everybody has his/her own opinion and method. He knows people who has 100 kilos from the long-hives, but some need to feed sugar even in the standard (for Russia) hives. Location, climate and source of nectar is very important.
    Woody Prickly personally does not like long-hives, in his opinion bees prefer "to go" vertically, rather than horizontally. The development in "normal" 12-frames hive is better than in 16-frames long-hive. His apiary has a permanent location, he has 70 kilos in average from the hives pictured above. Minimal - 45 kilos in very bad year. He never use syrup to feed the bees - he uses only frames with honey for wintering and feeding.

    Especially for oldtimer : please, read carefully - at the beginning it was stated that long-hives produce 100 kilos of honey. The rest of the beehives ARE not Langs!
    Серёжа, Sergey

    The main factor beekeeper! It all depends on the skill of the beekeeper.

    I had a visit from a Siberian beekeeper last summer. His honey had a very complex and sweet taste.
