Quick question for you fine beeks. I am wondering (I know it will vary based on where you are) what is the MAX weight of a hive? This is total weight, boxes, frames, bees, stores, etc... I have seen on Michael Bush's site what each box could weigh but I was wondering if anyone has info on the total weight of a hive. Again this is the max weight.
I am looking at getting a scale to weigh the hives but do not want to get one that will not work (maxed out). The scale I am looking at has a 400Lbs (181Kg) limit and want to make sure that that is enough.
So what is the heaviest hive you have ever had or seen.
