|We strip all
of our hives using bee escapes and a billet loader attached to
a scale. All the supers are lifted and weighed as a unit and
that information is automatically downloaded from the scale to the
computer to ensure that we have accurate
records of each hive's production.
Strict guidelines in the yards and in the honey house ensure that brood never gets into the honey.
Single storey hives being stripped with billet loader.
All of our hives stay as single storey brood chambers throughout the year. See OUTSIDE WINTERING OF SINGLE BROOD CHAMBER HIVES and OUTSIDE WINTERING OF SINGLE BROOD CHAMBER HIVES REVISITED. We have started wintering mating nuc hives and 5 frame nucs outside.
