Re: Bees Gone Wild
That would be my normal hive. So if all 6 mediums are occupied you should be able to harvest 2 mediums of honey. But I caution you to look in the bottom box. It may be empty (or full of pollen). If it is you can take one box of honey safely. The size of the hive is not important it is the size of the colony that matters. The beekeeper determines the size of the hive by how many boxes he / she throws on. The bees do what they want which may not be what the beekeeper wants.
