HI, Brian—Susan here, who handed off some swarm boxes to you at one time. Sounds like a good group you are selling. Have you been managing them well with at least monthly inspections of the colony brood nest and comb straightness issues? It would be helpful to responders to describe the hives themselves in more detail, as we have many more inexperienced beeks than knowledgeable ones.
1) how old are they?
2) what kind of hives (TBH or Langs) and the size of the hive bodies and number of boxes?
3) what kind of management have you done with them?
It sounds like you have some lead time on this sale project, so please try to interview prospective buyers for suitability to take hives—education, experience, mentoring, possession of protective clothing and tools, etc. We want to promote a safe and careful community of beeks that shows urban beekeeping in the best light. This will happen with thoughtful placement and training. Thanks a lot SusanJuly 18, 2014 at 5:40 pm #8890brian scottiParticipant
