Get in touch with Ron Brackeen out of Joshua, Texas. His doctors are advising him to get out of the business because of his heart condition. He's trimming way back. He's got equipment and bees.
I've got two hives with two main 10 frame boxes. They're drinking a gallon of bee feed a week. Hives are thriving but I am a novice.
My hives were setting on steel frames I built. An ant trail started almost immediately. So the legs got 2 inch PVC pipe caps on the base cupped upward. I filled the caps with motor oil. No more ant problem.
