No, I run ~40 hives at present, and I move my hives,
I have a site 2 sites on the sunshine coast that are good, 1 is on liquid gold (Macadamia) at present about 3 weeks left there if lucky, 8 hives on about a box a week.
I have 2 toowoomba sites (currently vacant), 1 Kenilworth site (currently vacant), 1 stanthorpe & 2 applethorpe sites (Vacant also)
I have 4 fixed sites that are a licence to print money. They are flower farms owned by one family, I have 6 hives per farm, and they pull 2-3 boxes of honey a week, I have to tend each farm twice a week. This has been like this for nearly 4 months now. They say they get better flower crops with the bees & I love the nectar flow.
I have a couple of local backyard hives in western Bris pulling a box a fortnight,
& I dropped 5 hives sunday morning in a local titree swamp & i pulled 3 boxes this afternoon off the 5 hives.
I will have another 20 hives by spring, but I have to find the time first. I was lucky & given 3 good sites from a retiring commercial beekeeper,I have not worked them to the seasonal potential yet as I don't have enough hives.
