I think those belong to a forum member. Stephen has hives in that area so obviously a little concerned. But as the article states the stop over is temporary.

Wow lots of hives. It's sad often thefts happen to little guys and these people put hundress of hives next to state 3 and probably don't lose any.

Theft sucks, no matter who gets hit. I feel for the victims, big and small.

It is no point to steal from themselves :rofl:

 

Hey, it was just a joke :geek: Who knows they may transport the hive further with helicopter, so they needed them all in one place.

I don't think it flowering very well around New Plymouth

It may be a wasted trip

Are they yours @Chris Valentine ?

All the Manuka and kanuka is flowering Spectacularly well in golden bay.

Shame about the constant wind on the west side but beeks on the east side must be pretty happy

We have started our pre harvest brood check and anything that's exposed to the southwest winds is pretty much hopeless. Many hives have no honey on.

Anything that's in a sheltered position is doing ok, one particular area is doing awesome but a few clicks down the road the boxes are empty.

 

A very mixed season with not much hope of a good crop.

As far as storms go, we have the Ovation of the Seas in port just down the road. They are sheltering overnight and will be here all day tomorrow. The wind would play havoc with that big thing.
