why hasn't ole commercial beekeeper Dallas posted to this post?HuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuh

Alright, alright Ted, Smiley   The hive count at this time is 130 hives and 22 nucs.  Now that could change at any moment for i have not been to check all the splits i made but only had 2 so far out of 50 did not take very well and are dwindleing down to nothing which i will fix this weekend.  It has been a lot of hard work and thankfully my two sons are great helpers.

Hey Robo,

You are stealing all those feral hives from tree branches. Speak up.

Sincerely,

We have 3 hives this year  -  2 that survived the winter (one was originally a nuc and the other was started from a package) and we just bought one more nuc last weekend.

We were so excited that our original 2 made it through this past crazy winter! grin grin

Our first nuc is really doing well. The one that was the package is hanging in there! Hopefully the new nuc will catch up quickly if there is anything left to forage after the Easter weekend deep freeze.  angry

2 hives.  Both overwintered just fine.  I am about to start an obversation hive so my count will be 3 soon. 
I am currently doing a trapping removal, but that hive will go to a friend who wants to start beekeeping this year.

My number has change three times since my last post. Cut outs cause it to go up, combing them causes it to go down. Right now the number is high enough that the wife is making me move a few off the property to a friends. So now I will have three more hives on another piece of property.

Robo: I am still waiting to here from you.

Hey Ted I just counted and I have 26 as well. I bet I'll have over 40 by the end of the season. I have 50 hive bodies on the way and I need 50 mediums and 50 bottom boards.
