I have enough tops and bottoms for 200 hives.  Sometimes I have to use makeshift tops or bottoms because I run  out, which would mean I'm over 200, and sometimes I have some setting around, which would mean I'm under 200.  In queen rearing season I usually have 200 mating nucs also.  I usually try to overwinter between 30 and 50 nucs in addition to the 200 hives.  But people like round numbers.  So I'll just say 200.

Four bee yards with around 65 at the moment but that could increase in the next few weeks, selling some here and there, adding some here and there.

12 colonies spread out among 4 bee yards. They consist of captured swarms, cut-outs, splits, and 1 package. I have 10 frame Langs, 5 frame deep nucs, & 1 Kenyan Top Bar Hive.

2 colonies, 6 nucs, 3 Langstroth hives, one KTBH, which I shouldn't count because I built it so badly.

3 made it through the winter - we're looking for 2 - 3 more but BetterBee kept changing our date and now we're not available the weekend they have our bees!

Anyone in the NY (rockland\bergen) county area know of any bees - let me know!
