Hi all the pollination season has now ended here in the western cape and have all my hives back on the farm, so I will have more time to chat on the forum and make some saw dust.

Welcome back Carl. I've missed your posts.

It's good to see you back Carl. You move your hives around to different farms during the flowering period and then bring them home?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Charles and Mike yes I move the hives mainly to the fruit orchards for pollination but it is a lot of work and traveling, I am so glad it is over as I missed making saw dust. regards carl

And for those that do not know, pollination done like that is some very important work. Welcome back Carl.

Welcome back Carl - my woodworking, bee-keeping friend here in George has also been busy on the same work, but right now he is inundated with calls to remove swarms from homes in town.

Just curious Carl, but here the beekeepers leave the hives until the end of the growing season before they go pick them up. Why do you pick them up and bring them home this early in the season?
