Beekeeping 101 / Re: What kind of hive is this?
« Last post by riverbee on Today at 01:50:51 PM »
it is a good video, and he breaks it down and also talks about expenses.
(he's from kazakhstan)

it is possible to make some dollars. last season my bees produced about 750 lbs of honey (4 hives). so approximately 187.5 pounds per hive. i sell my honey at $10.00 a pound. the math = $1875 per hive.  in reality, it was a good year, my hives were very strong except for the 5th one. (queen issues).
some hives had more supers on than others, but i just averaged the numbers out for you per hive.  we all have expenses to pay for the bees, the queens, all of the equipment and extracting and bottling equipment/supplies. labels, etc.....

also there will be years that this does not happen and it's possible not to harvest any honey or a very small amount.

In summertime gather up my tools with wooden handles and rough em up with sandpaper then rub in a linseed oil/beeswax wood treatment I made and leave in the sun. Handles last a lot longer in our humid climate and won't slip in my hand.

Wow Ef,

I really like that story. Wish I'd have known it when my kids were little. I will pass it on to the grands though.
