Working as a beekeeper for a commercial apiary is very different than being a hobby beekeeper. In this podcast episode I talk about my experience working for a honey production company.
Some photos and videos from the commercial apiaries I worked for:
This is a video of beekeepers moving 100 hives from the Macadamia nut farm to an Ohia forest on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Beehives in an Ohia forest at sunrise just after being moved.

Thousands of bees are outside the hives when they are being moved. Honey bees do not like the vibration from the truck and may go outside to see what's going on.
