    NZBF Strapping hives

    all our hives get a strap of some kind, after having several tipped over by wind, cattle a few years back, as big hands said "at least they stay together"

    Moving 30 double brood hives

    you still not said how many honey boxes are on each hive, if only one or two - leave them, why all the extra work fluffing around with frames taking them out and putting back in, work "smarter not harder"

    Show Your Truck

    where is this fuel rail, have had alook but can't see much for the wopping great air cleaner on top, what sort of $$ do you think it cost to replace the fuel rail, i see the cam belt was changed at 166, now at 216 not sure how often that gets replaced, they gave it to me with no manual in it, steel plate in motor bay says 2008.

    NZBF Heaps of empty cells in brood boxes

    you really need to pull out all frames when checking for cells, you will miss the ones they have tucked up beside the frames, if covered in bees shank them off, you will be suprised how many you miss doing it your way,

    how many honey boxes on the hives, if only one i would just put a strap around each hives real tight and do two trips, a piece of wind break is good to block the hive off with,

    Show Your Truck

    toyota now have the truck and are now putting it though the cert process, one of the requirements is that it needs a drive shaft loop/hoop. no biggie the truck they have given me to use is a toyota 3.0 D4D the last "D" is in red, has any one got one of these or know any thing about them, it seems a really great truck, although is a double cab like mine the deck is alot bigger, it seems to have alot more power than my old turbo girl which is also a 3.0, any comments would be great thanks

    i take the old girl and two frames of brood, if good q cells and a few of them i will also take frames with cells on and make up nucs, i try to leave the oldest and biggest cell and may be a uncapped they can sort things out from there, brood frames with one cell on goes into a nuc and bees from two other hives are added to build up the numbers a bit, i have found that bees from 3 different hives will get along ok, but put bees from two hives and this seems to cause problems,
