    18 hours? A lot more than that I suspect. And any real beekeeper wouldn't go half way around the World or more and not work bees w/ another beekeeper. It's what beekeepers do.

    Mark:

    Would you even have a clue when the best time of year to go to Auckland, NZ, to work bees, might be?

    Have you ever been to a temperate rain forest?

    Try talking down to me face to face and see where that gets you.

    Beekeepers do what needs doing when it needs doing, not when the best time of year comes around.

    Hey, I know. Let's ask OT!

    Clearly, we don't know his schedule down there.

    Flexible. Long as people can fit in, they will see and if they wish work the bees.

    Last February a new beekeeper from Canada came over, stayed in the house with us for 5 days, and spent all day every day working bees, he had a good strong back for removing the honey harvest so it worked out excellent from my perspective also.

    Like Sqkcrk says, it's what beekeepers do. The Canadian was a newish beekeeper and a treatment free beekeeper. So we are from different places. But when 2 beekeepers meet, there is an immediate bond. We shook hands and immediately there was a connection. His time with me was a great 5 days.
    44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).

    I would have no problem breaking open your hives. What ever I do wrong I figure you can fix.

    Sorry to interrupt this pig wrestling exhibition, but to get back to the original post..... I suspect there are many, like myself, who are members and don't bother to log into their account when on the forum. I presume, I'd then show up as a guest in the statistics. I only need to log in if I want to post something or search for a topic. The vast majority of the time what little I can contribute has already been added and questions I have are already asked, but I love hunting for those little jewels of helpful information that make me a better beekeeper. Sorry if my laziness is messing up the statistics, but never was one to follow the common road!

    Oh, come on teach. How are the bees doing with all that snow? And today it is going to be 60 degrees. Did you hear that?

    Now if you were really lazy (like me) you would follow the links you get in a email notification that will send you right to the threads that you subscribed to automatically signed in. Nothing says you have to post just cause you are signed in.

    Happy Holidays.

    Ian,
    I know what you mean. The Householder method for honey production is the talk of so many people.

    That's 360 per day. Too high in my estimation.

    Now with Mike's challenge, I may eat my words. This time of year, last year, the average was around 340 per day. Weekly average from Nov. 1, 2012 - Feb. 1, 2013 was 1,874.

    If you need to pump up the posts, may I propose global warming as a topic?

    Yeah, and they are not. It doesn't look good for next spring.
