How about a thread with the bee hives that you made. Just post your pictures of your home made beehive and lets kick some ideas around. Here is the bee yard.



I just put lime on the ground in order to kill the hive beetle larva that burrow into the ground.


Here is my two top bar hives.





I just started these hives so I now have to feed now that the honey flow is slow, and my bees ran out of honey. I made this feeder.



it attatches to the sides of my hives, as seen in the first picture.

Do you have a record of how much honey you get from a hive (an estimate)?

Well it depends on the hive, what plants are around, and much more. In the first year you should not expect to harvest honey. but after the hive is established you can expect to get about 50lbs of honey in a year. give or take 100 lbs.
