Re: huney bees

We have been keeping bees for many years.  One thing I have leaned, if you ask 10 beekeepers the same question, you will get 20 answers.  I can help you answer any specific questions you may have.    You wont need to keep the bees in your garage, they do quite well for themselves in the cold, provided you insulate them from the wind and they have food and proper ventilation.

Re: huney bees

I always thought permanently in the garage or outbldg would be nice.

would only work for a few hives but that's all I have and want

protected from everything and a short flat, wide tube to get them thru the wall

Re: huney bees

I went to a friend of a friend's one time to see his hives. There was a long low cinder block building that he had converted into a honey house. On the south wall he had made a couple of holes, I think took out a couple of blocks and he had 2 hives on that wall so the entrances were in line with the holes. His garden was right outside and in the other end of the building he had all his gear.  When we were there he was harvesting honey. Basically just taking a frame out of the hive and walking to the other end where his extractor was. Quite a good small set up I thought.


Blue Buff and Silver Laced Brahmas plus too much other stuff to list.
