Beekeeping Update - Time to Scale

After some deep thought, I've come to the conclusion that one hive will yield minimal honey compared to 3. Thus I've ordered two more 3 pound boxes of bees and will be setting up two more hives in a week or so.

More video to come

why not 6? Also how do the bees know to go back to the right hive? What if they all go back to one hive? Will that mean less or more honey?

That's for next year. Apparently there is a big interest in beekeeping this year and Dadant is having trouble keeping up with the supply. Also I need to see how well the area supports three hives.
