Yes, travelling distance is important.
Where in the UK do you live (Town/City/ or Postal area).
I live in the South (Porstsmouth) so wouldnt be interested in having to drive too far to collect really :)

Steve, I have a Langstroth hive for sale in Winchester.

Its a brand new hive This year from Thornes with a 2009 Queen on 10 frames and a super.

Reason for selling is I use National hives and it seems silly to run a single Langstroth with them,the idea was to try a Langstroth but I have so many Nationals already.

Its the hive under the 5 frame Nuc,It now has a super on with a glass quilt crownboard.

Thanks JC,that pic was taken in May when the Hawthorn bushes at the back came into flower.

I do very well from Willow,blackberry and ivy,so my season spreads out from spring to autumn.

Just behind the bushes at the fence end of the hives is a very nice trout stream for the bees to collect water from.

After your flirtation with langstroth, what about converting your nats to 14x12 ?

I think it's a good combination, because with less active bees you can have a few on standard deeps, but use an eke to up the brood volume for the fast breeders. you can have the best of both worlds on one set of kit.

I would like to start keeping bees next spring(2010), in Winchester. How much do you want for your hive with bees?

Yes Peter I do get some,but about the same as any other layout.
Although I am not so sure about Drones,I can tell the female drifters by the colour but not so sure about the boys.

I dont worry to much as I tend to treat the apiary as a whole rather than individual hives.
