Looking to expand? 500 hives...WOW!
« on: March 15, 2013, 06:24:23 AM »
I was playing around on Craigslist and stumbled across THIS AD!

Interesting!  Looks like someone's getting out of the Bee business.  I know the company the Baton Rouge bee club uses for packages and queens is from that area...Wondering if it's the same folks?

I agree Moots. I also wonder if the original Beekeep could have passed away. I don't think anyone in my family will want to take over when I'm gone. Kinda makes me wonder.
Later,

that's what happens most of the time when you see something like that, family doesn't take over when health get to where you cant work them or a death, I left a couple empty hive in Ga at the house when me and my wife split, well seems a swarm moved into one of the hives, I went to get a load of my boxes and seen it, well my wife said that was her bee's and wanted me to leave them there lol, fine with me, she will remove swarms also so I left her a couple more hives.
THAT's ME TO THE LEFT JUST 5 YEARS FROM NOW!!!!!!!!

Never be afraid to try something new.

There are ads in the bee journals for lots of bee operations for sale all the time.  All it takes is lots of money to get to the big time real fast.
