it looks so cool when those bees swarm like that! how many hives to do you have?
I can only keep so many as I am busy removing them from people's houses and trees, bldgs, etc...

I usually try and keep my apiary to no more than 50 hives. I currently have 40 going at the moment.

I'm currently in college to be an office administrator (exciting I know..) but I certainly like the idea of bee keeper :p

Does your bee farm ever lead to infestations of your home or close by neighbors?
I've had a few swarms here and there that I was able to contain. I do my best to prevent swarming by giving them room and splitting the hives when and if swarm cells are seen.

Healthy hives will want to swarm, the key is to manage them and trick them, by splitting them, and simulating an artificial swarm, so as they think they've already swarmed.

To do this, the mated queen has to be moved to another box, along with brood and feed.

I also keep swarm traps handy in my apiaries which also help to catch swarms that made up their minds to leave.

i was a full time high end auto tech for 13 years. Hated every minute of it. Then went back to school, got a job as a photographer while still in school. So now I work as a photographer and I crew a dive boat on the side.

My part time job is encoding adult films from the DVD format to the WMV format for an adult film website... I also write the description/title for each scene etc.
I am 30 credits shy of my bachelors in English Literature and Criticism (English is the only subject I'm good at besides the behavioral sciences). I stopped going to school, but I plan on going back in the spring. I am starting my own clothing company... check me out at
