2, but it is my first season among the bees. From what I'm reading it gets out of hand pretty quick  :evil:

trying to hold firm at one, but I fear resistance is useless!

2.5  I have enough wooden ware for 6, but it's hard to find tough hardy Queensland bees that can survive on dirt and rocks.

Grieth, you need more than one.  If something goes wrong, you'll need to rob Peta to pay Paula.  And the more you have, the more fun you have.  Exponentially.  See how ecstatic I am?

I currently have 3 hives and 2 nucs,
I was going to split a hive this morning but a 6am thunder storm ended that idea for today.

cheers
