Please put things back in your pants :-X
Honey yields depend on the environment and vegetation , some people advertise bees that collect 120kg+ every year :-\
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 :-D How did this happen? :shock:
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, :idunno: 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:
