    Default Craigslist for breakfast..

    While eating breakfast this morning I was looking thru craigslist. I found a add for hives for sale. After looking at the add and contacting the seller. I find out he is moving and needs to sell the hives. He had the State Inspector out two weeks ago to check the health of all the hives and had certificate for it. 2 of the hive are 3 mediums with lots of stores left and high bee numbers. The other hive was 1 deep and 4 mediums. Top 2 meds were seting above a queen excluder and both full of capped honey. Again this hive full of bees and stores below excluder. Needless to say the wife and kids loaded in the truck and took a little road trip. Here is some pictures of the hives and a frame of honey I pulled out and took a picture of

    How much per hive? Honey looks good, but I never trust other's hives for some reason, don't know if they were feeding or what but if he says it's ok, I guess I would be comfortable with it.
