I have three hives but one passed on to the great beyond this winter so will be splitting to obtain three working hives.

Four now.  Plan to add one more this year and hold at five.  Three in my back yard and two at a small farm a mile from my home.  Right now all four of the existing are in my yard and going like gangbusters!

Right now we have three, due to the death of one package, but we've just brought a hive over to a club member who will put a swarm in it for us as soon as that happens around here (we're actually third on the list). 

We'll have three more hives up in Maine in mid-May.

So, put us down for seven.
