|April - 2017 is our 14 year Anniversary
13 Years ago we took Alex bzenko's last apiaries. Hives were all dead but 4.
We rebuilt using what I call skyscraper beekeeping (I.P.D.M.)
The yards are alive and producing honey 13 years later
Along with one of the last Dan Guthrie honey yards
Alex and Dan had nearly 1000 hives that wintered here and produced honey
12% loss for 12years and honey average up to 230lbs i
The Cure for CCD. No one Running Program in our Club
