Are these decent quality hives?


http://www.backyardhive.com/General/...ekeeping_Shop/

Decent? Crap? Overpriced?

I have wasps following me around, and I grabbed a yellow jacket (took me a while to notice it buzzing in my hand). Honeybees are more docile, and territorial around the hive; I'll put some lavender providence around them, along with the fruit trees, so they chase wasps away.

I've seen wasp nests on the side of honey bee hives..

Here in Michigan, we've been having horrible problems with yellow jackets year after year.
This past winter, it hit 20 below zero.. I haven't seen a yellow jacket wasp yet this summer.. Yipee !!!

Yeah no kidding. I'm finding wasps now. My persimmon is flowering.

Gonna build a hive from plans, but make it 48 inches. I don't know if I can get white cedar... would be nice.
