Nice design, quality Western Red Cedar, window is great for monitoring the cluster; I use screened bottom for good ventilation and varroa mite control.
Can't wait to give it as a X-mas gift!!
Hive arrived on time, it was very easy to assemble. The only problem I have had is over the summer when it got in the upper 80s outside all of my girls wanted to hang on the front of my hive. not a problem until i needed to do an inspection. There is nothing to stop the roof from pinching the girls on the front of the hive. I ended up taking a small piece of chain and making a stop so the the roof didn't pinch the front and kill my bees hope this will help so nobody else has to loose any bees
Just finished my second class which was a hands on and up close and personal interaction with bees . It was one of the most thrilling experiences I have ever had. What an awesome learning opportunity! Cannot wait until the next one.
I love bee thinking! You guys have been a saving grace for me for resources and we are so grateful!
