Beekeeper in Omaha, NE

Hello folks,

As the tagline says, I am a commercial beekeeper in Omaha, NE. Actually, I run a combination business that does live bee removals, placing bee hives for pollination, pest management and beekeeping supplies and equipment sales.

It is the last area, beekeeping supplies and equipment, that brings me here.

I currently build and sell bee hives for local beekeepers and build them myself.

Of course, I also build all the hives I use for my business myself.

My intent for joining a woodworking forum is two-fold to bee honest.

I am always looking for tips, ideas and advice to build a better bee hive.

and

I might be looking for someone in the local, Omaha, NE area who might want to take over building the hives that I sell for me because I am getting so darn busy in the bee removal, hive placement and pest management stuff, I have less and less time to build hives.

I promise, you will never have to worry about me trying to sell anything on this forum, but I will also honestly admit that I am always willing to discuss via private messages, emails or phone calls the possibility of someone building hives for me.

BTW...

Never ever ever ever buy a "Tradesman" brand tablesaw. I've regretted it from day 1

well, depends on how they are built, in what volume they are sold and if they are sold retail or wholesale, assembled or un-assembled.

this is what one looks like generally, though there are different sizes and types.



Now, to bee more specific, in my case, I am looking to buy them un-assembled, wholesale and in volume.

I will then turn around and assemble them and paint them on an as ordered basis for my retail customers.

It does me no good to buy them pre-assembled or in huge bulk amounts because the beekeeping industry is very up and down.
