    Default Another Paragraph In My Resume

    I have hived a swarm in a Warre hive. This swarm was so friendly. It first spent a few hours in a difficult to catch spot and then flew across the street and hung like a fruit for an easy bucketizaton.

    Add this achievement to hiving packages into a two standard Warres, a package into an Octagon Warre, and now this swarm, I think I am really rounding out my career. Soon I will add hiving a swarm into a topbar hive and I might be able to get a Phd.

    Thumbs Up Re: Another Paragraph In My Resume

    Great surroundings for that hive! Reminds me of some foreign, idyllic place far, far away.....But its right down the road from SF.

    Temporary in my backyard. They are for an apiary that I am building for a client. Two eight frame Langs, one topbar, one Warre. It will be tough to part with them. Next year I need to build some Warres and topbars for myself. After 43 years of Langs it has become like marital sex. Making love to the same woman over and over and over again. At least with new styles of beehives I can finally get some variety won't get in trouble.
