So I’m having my first inspection for my hives tomorrow w/ the state apiarist. After that I’m hoping to register myself on the state site for an llc. I want to sell hives! I have too many. 7+ three splits in the works.
Planning on using the name Cruiser Queen Apiary. It’s available. What do folks think?
Been crazy hard at work making boxes. These plus 4 more… and a few more planks in the garage. All w/ a jig and circular saw alone. Even getting my rabbets perfect w/ the saw.
Someday I’ll get back to the truck!

Passed my inspection w/ flying colors. Inspector had nothing but good to say. Even stated “you have a really nice establishment here, I really like it. I love your wooden ware too. You’ve got some really calm and strong hives.” ❤️❤️❤️
Four splits ready to rock. All have queen cells in them. They’ll emerge in a week to two and take their mating flights and be laying eggs in probably 4 weeks.

What you see is basically a total of 11 hives in 7 hive bodies. It’s an easy way to bide time to make equipment. The original queen is in the box backed w/ a queen card. The splits are marked w/ an Ace. They are divided by a double screen board or also referred to as a snelgrove board.
