    Great pictures, many thanks for sharing! Could you tell us, what is average yield (how much you collect) of honey per hive per year? Also, I noticed that the pictures come from different sources - is it all your hives?

    Why do some hives have boards leading down to the ground?

    I am guessing those are "LANDING BOARDS" or "RAMPS" for the bees to walk in

    I noticed in pic/link #4 those boxes look to be med-shallow boxes, according to the paint colors, do they use the same size boxes for supers and brood?

    Yes, it's true, those are "LANDING BOARDS" or "RAMPS" for the bees to walk in.
    D1here- I don't understand what it means, but
    In Poland we have about 7 types of hive. Sometimes frames in supers are different than frames in brood. (another dimension)
    The most hives in Poland have warms walls.
    I have hives like in this scheme.

    D1here- I don't understand what it means,
    Most of us use LANGSTROTH hives that will consit of two 9 and 5/8 inch deep brood chambers on bottom with two 6 and 5/8 inch medium superson top for honey to be stored in

    What is the average price of honey in USA ? depends on where you buy it I have seen it for $4.00 for 8 oz
    hopefully this will help you understand

    Well
    if you are using Lang hives, than, there is not much difference with USA:
    "Most of us use LANGSTROTH hives that will consit of two 9 and 5/8 inch deep brood chambers on bottom with two 6 and 5/8 inch medium supers"

    Also, you sort of contradict yourself -in the attached hive drawings you show the hive, which is not Lang to my taste..it is more like AZ-hive. Is this right? Oldtimer posted the link to photo-gallery with many different beautiful beehives:

    I didn't say that in the photos are LANGSTROTH hives!! In Poland Langstroth hive is very rare. We are using dadant hives or other Polish types of hives.
    For exemple: photo 1. WIELKOPOLSKI hives, photo 2. DADANT hives, photo 3. WIELKOPOLSKI hives, photo 4. APIPOL hives.
    This says something to you?

    I guess, I mixed up. I referred to the post #11 where in red says that "Most of us use LANGSTROTH hives..." - I misunderstood, it was not your words... It was a comment. My fault, sorry about that.
