Sunday Sandra and her family came down to adopt a bee colony for their new Mann Lake Top Bar Hive. Sandra and her 10 year old daughter Mabel will be teaming up to start their new beekeeping ventures, and top bar hives (TBH) are great as there’s no heavy lifting of 40 pound boxes. We transferred frames from a colony in a Langstroth box into the TBH.
Two observation windows were added to the Mann Lake Top Bar Hive.
It was Mabel’s idea to make the observation windows the same shape as the honey comb cells. 🙂
Looks like Mabel and her family will be peeking in once a while to see how the progress is with the colony.
Sandra and Mabel with their new hive!
