    I've never seen covers like those. What's the idea of the boards on top running as they do?

    We also use bottle feeders so this design goes perfect with this type of feeding

    No functional advantage, just something you like? Made up on your own or following someone elses design?

    They do look like they do the job quite well for you.

    That is always a good idea.Anything to make them stand out.I also like the full name and address stenciled on each box like John Miller and Steve Parks(and others) do.

    Not sure about Oregon...... That's up to them. But if you have some in California you are REQUIRED to have them marked.... Back to my question as to why all the hives with those lids are never marked as per the law??????

    Really nice looking hives, Father & Sons!
    We take pride in our equipment as well, and all of our growers have commented on appearance at one time or another.
    The old saying, "The bees don't care what the hives look like," may be true.
    But from the compliments I have received; the growers obviously do!
    I have exactly ONE hive more than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond question.

    Harry, Since the Oregon DOA website link on bee regulations is dead I was not able to find the answer. Are you guys required to mark hives with owner info as in Cali or not?

    No, we are not.
    It's stupid not to. But not required here.
    We do have State Hive Brand Numbers, and are required to register our hives annually.
    That is it for Oregon.
    I have exactly ONE hive more than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond question.

    I try to keep my equipment clean and gonna put new repainted stenciled boxes this year and my hive color will be white and the boxes I take off will be repainted stenciled and put back on

    Last time I checked, prior to unloading, the county ag makes sure the boxes are marked or else its a no go. Tehema and Shasta make it clear. Maybe some counties dont enforce it? I guess if your an in stater then ag dont check unless complaints are filed.

    Smart idea. Jumping on board with properly marking your hives will potentially save your bacon and reduce the hassles for PCA's or other people looking for the answers as to who owns "those bees."

    Tehama Co. requires a sign at each apiary site with name and contact info.

    Same in Shasta county. Super cheap signs.com is a good place to get corregated plastic signs printed up.
