If you are in a less populated area, some beekeepers recommend taking the top off all the hives in the apiary, thus causing each hive's bees to stay home and defend their own stores, rather than be out stealing other's.

that's interesting.

thats what i do when i pull honey after july around here -the exposed honey makes the bees go frenzy -and the suppers in the back of the truck are fair game -pull all the lids from every hive in the yard and the bees are inclined to stay with there own hive and guard it from competing bees-makes a world of difference  cheesy RDY-B
