Reasonable activity from all hives today. Surprisingly the Queenless hive has drained it's syrup faster so I threw another one on them. Still have to move the other hive off the picnic table but I'm going to wait till they get established and I see some brood. _________________ "All that comes out of the exhaust pipes of this porche are baby foxes."
How would you "Harvest the Honey" without getting a "House Full of Bees"? It's pretty but absurd. Also it doesn't appear to respect Bee space so hello burr comb all over the glass! _________________ "All that comes out of the exhaust pipes of this porche are baby foxes."

Correct, but none of that would actually be a problem, because it doesn't come with any bees. They claim that the tiny place for a flowerpot would be enough to attract a swarm and make it move in.
None of that honeycomb would fit into an extractor, so you'd have to tear apart their habitat to collect honey, which would probably get you several stings regardless of how much you smoke them. Also, your tasty honeycomb would be full of larva and eggs and nymphs since there's no way to control where the queen goes.
It's like they just didn't consult a beekeeper for even a second before designing that thing.

John and Mark may have already seen this, but for everyone else.
