    ah, just looked into them, there’s more:
    4 deep 5-frame Nuc boxes. You can have them free if you get the hives.

    The three hives are complete with one deep box and three mediums with frames,bottoms and top covers includes. The two new ones are still in the box, you will need to asemble the boxes and frames. all I remember now was I paid more than $800 for the two new hives, and never used them.. shoot me any offer, they must go.

    for CA native plants, I’m going to plant wild lilac(ceanothus), buckwheat and coyote mint. I’m replacing the lawn with ground covering ceanothus.

    thanks for sharing this. I’m too planting my bee yard. I’ve found that bluebeard is especially attractive to honeybees and very easy to grow and propagate. I found them in my local garden center, and there was a traffic of bees, so I bought 5 of them.

    African blue basil is also very easy to propagate, I have successfully rooted two cuttings without previous experience.

    There’s one big golden rain tree blooming in my neighborhood, my bees swarm to that tree everyday now.

    I’ve read that bees may create “practice swarm cells”, as long as you don’t find eggs and jelly in them it’s fine.

    is it a hive from package bees? if yes then they may requeen themselves. I had mine killed the queen after they had two frames of brood and I had to buy a new queen.
