How many Hives do You have?

Although we use the words BACKYARD BEEKEEPER a lot around the forum, you'd be surprized at how many hoves many of the members tend in their yard.

By knowing how many colonies we have, we better understand the magnitude of how parasites, equipment costs, medications, extracting techniques and other common functions of beekeeping is done and to how much effort is put into their hobby.
