I have 4 hives, 1 TBH and 3 Langs.  The 3 are 1 of 2 deeps and 2 of 3 deeps, the TBH also has a full 10 frame deep mounted on top of it from the rear that is fully stocked with access from the last 6 bars each shaved 3/16" giving access.  All are very well stocked and full of bees so hoping everything makes it through.  On colder days I place my ear on them to listen to the humm...they all sound well.  On warmer days they are flying, I know not where to...

Taking their proverbial release perhaps :-D or removing dead or other trash when able.

I have 40 hives going into winter. Today may have been be the last day of bee activity around here for a while, and boy were they busy.

Joel,
How high do your hives get at peak season? What is you average pounds per high?
I have heard that you get some pretty good flows.

13 hives.  Just finished beekeeping for the year.  Oxalic acid, wrapping, upper vent, mouse guards, and candy boards (if needed) have been done/installed and see them in March.
