I'm planning to put on a Warre super in about a week or two.  This time I will try to get some pictures when I pull the super.

I want about 2 acres of yellow sweet clover and alfalfa.  But I should probably build be a fence to keep the elk and mule deer out.  I'm afraid they would mow down everything I planted.

The blue one is alive and well - doing very good actually. The Yellow one is closed up - may try to split the Blue one next spring and add that to my resume :)

Looks good, Sam!  It didn't take me long to spot the two Warre hives!

To chime in here- I ordered from Bethinking and received about a quarter of what i paid for. After two dozen calls and emails to them with no response, I finally went to Amazon. I used Amazon pay for my orders and filed a claim. Unbelievably Amazon was able to get me a refund from Bethinking.

I think beethinking just got ahead of themselves...in hindsight it becomes a bit obvious...I read a post of the owner talking about how firing 47 people was the hardest thing he had ever done...all I could think was, "dang...47 people...hopefully 42 of them were making hives"...but i think they were top heavy...lots of managers and such.  Somebody also mentioned them over planning on mead production...again, Mead? really. probably too much hipster, not enough builder. anywho...maybe I can find, or make, a nice copper top.

as for the swarm harvester...yeah...the very first swarm we had at this house (13 years ago) we had a "bee guy" from the East Mountain come out and grab it...it was cool how he could just put a box under the swarm and shake the branch and catch the bees...no protective gear at all. he mentioned that he could put a one way out for the bees and a small hive next to the wall and get most of the bees...but he thought the queen wouldn't come out...and we didn't want to kill a queen (reading more about hive and bees and I see a queen death is often part of the life of the hive)...

I might go that route...will wait a bit to see if this group picks up a bit...the hive seems stalled...it did this once before and the bees dissappeared for a couple of years before returning (and by returning I mean a new swarm must of found some comb and decided this would be a good home). It would be ironic if I get a hive and the wall bees decided to go away...

That's too bad.  I don't and won't take anyone's money until the product is ready to ship.  BeeThinking was taking people's money just to stay afloat.  That, my friend, is called a Ponzi scheme!  Gavin, what did you think about my earlier post about the Swarm Harvester?
