Technical Abstract: : A stationary hive project was initiated in the spring of 2009. This research project will run through 2013 and consists of two replicate two-year trials (2009-2011 and 2011–2013). The objective of the study was to conduct a longitudinal study of colonies through a two-year period. In this article we review observations that were recorded in the First Trial of this study (2009-2011), specifically the effects that relate to abiotic factors that characterized each apiary site.
