I have a question: During a honey-flow, what is a good measure of hive activity? Can you measure by the number of bees entering/exiting? If so, what would that be for an established, viable hive?

No idea about numbers of bees entering and leaving; that would depend on the strength of your hive and it's going to vary over the season. Mebbe someone else has a handle on this.

I have heard of people weighing their hives and seeing the weight increase 10-15 pounds per DAY during a strong flow. Sounds fun, but I haven't figured out how to easily weigh hives yet.. but I'm working on it.
