2 as of now but have supers ready to catch swarms, hopefully in next week or so.
Both doing nicely but still feeding after last freeze, maybe honey flow not as plentiful this year.

I started with eight hives that overwintered very well.
         I have nine new ones from captured swarms in March 07-doing well.
         I have two new ones from cutouts this past weekend - strong hives.
         So total hives at this time would be 19 hives.

         Funny how your hives multiply so fast when your having fun!

5 hives for now, but currently working on "hardware" in order to make another 2-3 nucs this year
maybe I'll get even some swarms (this year seem to be very swarmy)...
