- Number of Hives
All of my hives have been given to me by a friend (I have some nice friends) he is a beek in Somerset and always had a brood and a half, but he's now moved onto old Gales hives which are apparently much bigger so he only uses 1 brood box, so my question is :- I currently have 3 hives and could probably set up another one, there are plenty of supers. If I wanted to expand would I be better (considering I haven't bought hives) to move into something else - Langstroth seems to be well though of, or stick with Nationals (which are v popular so they must be okay) Does it get too complicated having 2 set ups?
