    OK, here's the BEE content. If someone would like to provide an estimate of the world honeybee population, we could see whether all those bees will fit into one cubic acre.

    Well, he did specify that they would have to be dehydrated and maybe it was 5 or 10 cubic acres. I don't really recall. Whatever it was, it pointed out how little the space is that we could occupy.

    What are you really asking allan? Do you have any hives yet? It doesn't really matter what the answer is, you will never fill it up. A semi load of commercially run 4 way pallets of beehives could fit comfortably on an acres of land w/ space to manuver around them in order to work them. That's 408 hives, depending on what sort of semi trailer one is used to working with.

    If we reduced 7 billion people to one cubic foot, how many cubic acres would that be? Seems like a cremated person would fit in a cubic foot, or even less.

    all I was asking is if 1 acres would be enough space and if there was like a limit on how many hives per acre that's all

    A truck load (408 hives) will fit on an acre for over wintering. During the honey flow (spring/summer/fall) I would not put more than 64 hives within a 2 mile radius, and I would want 160 acres to 320 acres of Alfalfa or clover... within 400 yards and don't forget a water source.

    I think Allan really meant to ask is "how many hives can one acre sustain?"

    Well that's odd frank. Wonder why he didn't ask what he wanted to know?

    Allan - by my count you got 6 responsive, useful answers. The rest was some responses to the useful answers, and then there was a lot of fluff.

    While you may prefer to have less fluff, 6 responsive answers is not too bad overall. The fluff posts were not directed at you personally - but sometimes that is going to happen in a public forum such as Beesource. You can always choose to ignore the fluff.


    (the comments above are from the perspective of someone who has a foot in each camp. I did offer a responsive answer, but then also contributed to the fluff.)

    I'm not sure. You seemed to dislike the answers you got. I can understand not caring for "the fluff" as Rader called it. But, you seemed to be upset. Unless I misunderstood. But you did Post that you would no longer ask anymore questions on beesource or making anymore Posts. Was that you being humorous?
