    Musings on a Survivor Hives

    Thereís this little hive I have behind my house. They came on their own, moving into an empty trap hive I had stored back there. But that was two years ago. I havenít done anything with them. I havenít even peeked inside their box. I guess at this point it makes them a survivor hive.

    I just let them be, coming and going as they maintain their little colony. It gives me something to watch, especially the abundant activity in the morning as they bring in pollen. The afternoon entertainment is the orientation flights of the new field bees.

    That is what my husband wants, a hive that just takes care of itself. Willing to take care of all the others, but wants one we can ignore.

    Neat write up!

    Take one of those carnie hives or one of the Russians and put them in an 8 frame double deep, they'll swarm once or twice a yr and keep the mites at bay
