The swarm I hived


« on: March 14, 2007, 01:34:05 PM »

Hi all my name is Carson and I woud like to have about 2 or 3 hives for the fun of it im only 18 years old and i have never done this befor I have 2 books one is " Starting Rite with bees " the other one is " Frist Lessons in Beekeeping ". Then i have 8 mags with the gear and ever thing. The people my dad and I work for  just got some more land and the guy thay got it from is all most 80 years old and he has hives like crazy most of them are put up in the  milk barn that thay got with the land  so I askd them about the hives and thay told him and he said he will sell me some of them or all of them he has to have over 200 hives and supers and he has  a 30 to 80 frame extractor. Some of them need a lot of work others are ok I have not bee inside the barn  so im gonna ask him if it is ok. He has about 4 hives with bees and he has not workd them in about 4 or 5 years now he is just to sick. I want to get some of them without the bees in them but im woried about getting them and them haveing afb or efb or any other stuff like that. So I just need all the help and idea on what to do about this. Thanks all so much                          Carson

Cool thanks a bunch for that info. Right now im trying to restore a 1941 farmall A tractor but i woud still like to have 2 or 3 hives for the fun of it I dont wanna get into it big I dont have room for the extractor un less it was a lil one that can hold 2 frames. I had the idea to use the Bees for my moms garden and ever thing hear to get Polinated. The land  right around my house  has nothing but blackberrys but there to small to eat but there the hives are im looking at there huge and I was watching a bee and im like thats why the blackberrys are so big. I might see 10 honey bees hear at the house a year if that and then my mom and dad cant grow some things cuz thay dont get Polinated. But any ways thanks for talking to me ill try and not to bug ever one to much lol.
