I've recieved on offer I'm finding hard to refuse. The orchard where I keep my hives wants me to expand. They are even willing to purchase some packages of bees to offset the price of increasing. (I don't charge pollination I am just happy to have a good place for my bees)
My question is...and its a dumb newbee one, but....How much more work is having 10 hives. Until now I've been a hobby guy with 2-3 hives and I only expanded to 5 through catching swarms through pure luck.
Any input would be appreciated.
