If they increased energy bill for your home by a factor of 4.5 would you consider that cruel? If so why are you doing that to your bees?

Please put things back in your pants  Lips Sealed

Honey yields depend on the environment and vegetation , some people advertise bees that collect 120kg+ every year  Undecided

Another factor is the BEEKEEPER not a bee owner doing things right and at the right time.

My mentor helped his nephew with 3 hives, he had them in the same area that an old experienced bee owner had 6 hives that gave him ca 12kg/year/hive = ca 72 kg 

The nephew averaged 60kg per hive = 180 kg  grin How did this happen?  shocked

He got help and the right information over the phone how to optimize his hives.

Early in the year the old bee owner told him what he thought he should do and interrogated him on his hives condition. As the season progressed and the nephews hives grew into skyscrapers the older bee owner beecame scarce and didn't even look at him.
One can only hope that he takes stock over his beekeeping and maybee changes his way/methods to keep bees, or not, he might bee content with his substandard methods,  I dunno fine.

Same area, same bee race, different beekeepers  bee

Or can it depend on my mentor is from finish decedent ( not finski )

Find a competent beekeeper , offer free help , ride there coat tails , and learn how to bee a successful beekeeper if that is your goal.  bee

tack ska du har

but bönorna do not stay in pants. You know it, bönaboare.

You know nothing about yields. This year average yield of UK was 4 kg per hive.

I tried to make a bit fool with Mr Insulator.

I have heard the the worst insult i Sverige är fakki-idiot.

Bönorna = old slang "chicks/hot women" plural , not dead yet so still trying  grin

If it was a poor harvest year in the UK they should capitalize on it and raise local honey prises to an appropriate level.

Not really  rolleyes

Surely they got more than 4kg per hive in the UK?  Brother Adam was getting much more than that from his hives.  Nearly 100kg at one point.  Oddly enough, Brother Adam didn’t believe in insulation at all.  Go figure huh 

Surely we don't want to criticize somebody in the UK, or elsewhere, for wanting to insulate their bees and making their living conditions more similar to the bees "natural" living conditions?

I have seen the condensation question come up before and I have seen people claiming that the bees drink the condensation from within the hives.  I have no idea rather that is true or not, but this winter nearly all my hives and nucs have clear plastic inner covers so maybe I'll observe something worth reporting.

For many UK beeks this has been the worse year EVER. I've heard stories of some people feeding their hives right throughout the year, just to keep their colonies alive - so for many it's been a negative harvest. Rain, rain, rain - we went straight from a drought (with a hosepipe ban) to the wettest spring & summer since records began.

Oh - and as I type this, it's STILL raining - and with the ground already water-logged, there are hundreds of flood warnings in force, rivers bursting their banks, bridges washed away - that sort of thing.

Crazy weather - my girls were out flying today - 23rd November (!), and bringing back pollen.   In my yard there are dandelions, daisies, cow parsley - all have come into bloom for a second time this year. 2012 has been very weird indeed.

I followed UK weather the whole year. It was terrible. 15C was "normal" along summer.

Reason was high pressure and hot weathrs in eastern Europe and in Siberia. The edge areas rained cats and dogs.

I have some zero hives too. before that I have not such hives. Basic temp was low. We hardly got  over 20C days.

What I learned from  this summer weathers was that wind  makes bees' foraging difficult under 18C weather. That is same what Australians have noticed.

Wide fields, where is no winter shelter, they are bad to bees in critical temperatures.
Hives in windy places consume honey lots when they keep  warm their hives.

 The English language over here has lots of foreign phrases. We even had a long running TV documentary program called QED (i'll let you guess what that stands for)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q.E.D.
deja Vu
Sine Qua non
ce la vie
Bon homie
et cetera

and even foreign place names
Doo lally

cant think of any modern Swedish phrases or words though.

Pardon me for oppressing you  with my education in my own language

Trolls come from Scandinavia...

Edward, I refute your slanderous insults that impune one for using phrases outside your limited knowledge of English.
surely using a well known phrase as "Quod erat demonstrandum" as a basis to accuse some one af being and internet troll (" inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, ")
is in fact the work of an internet troll. I suggest you purchase a mirror when going Troll hunting.

To make the most of a bad situation I hope you can raise your prices.

Colleagues in the north of Sweden had a terrible season 2-3 years ago and it was impossible to buy local honey, many grocery stores put signs in the shelves telling the customers why  Sad
The year after when the harvest was normal the honey price increased with 50%  grin and is still at that price  to day.
Every cloud has a silver lining

Do we need to broker a new peace treaty between our friends in Finland, Sweden, and the UK?

Trolls come from Scandinavia

This might bee the case, and if so one might expect that we have a little more experience spotting them  grin

outside your limited knowledge of English

I didn't know that my limited knowledge of Latin meant that I don't understand my native tongue  rolleyes
