Brian, excellent!!!  Look at the gumption you've got.....that is alot of work to build fences, and you are accomplishing this.  So what if it takes you until Christmas?  All good things take time.  This is something that I have learned, over and over and over  Smiley Wink Sad  Have a wonderful day, best of this life.  Cindi

Brian..  If I didn't live 2400+\- miles away I'd be over there to help with that fence - you can bet on that.  You give us all great advice and we appreciate it.  I bet you're the toughest ole' goat on the property.

Who lives near Brian...?

Nice looking yard. Do you have problems with robbing?  I notice you have different sized colonies, Are the bigger ones full of honey?

yep, actually most of the hives have honey, i should be extracting(about 15 boxes) this weekend. I have no real problem with robbing, most of the smaller hives have entrance reducers(pieces of wood/mesh) on them.

That's a great looking outfit. Do the bees ever have any down time in the Caribean or just go all year long?

based on the variety of flora and fauna food is available all year round. that being said rainfall is what really determines how often you can get honey. Season generally runs from about jan-feb to june-july. I am lucky in that i can basically get honey year round. My last extraction(of 4) was july and if it weren't for the hurricane in august and continuous rain in october i could have done another one. but we genrally tend to use july -oct to treat, do repairs, major spltting etc and start building up for jan.

That is correct. I do spend a lot of time watching them, and this is how I have learned so much about them. It is never wasted time.

He has those same top covers as I do. Mine are from Honey Run Apiaries, but perhaps he got his somewhere else.

They are vent boxes,  similar to the ones on the DE hives,  except I use a different inner cover configuration.

On the pic on the right, the closest hive: what's on the front of the bottom super, just above the entrance?
