The swarm from the last post is now housed in this neat Warre hive.
Nice. Did you make the hive or purchase locally? I notice that it has windows for observing the comb building progress.
Nice. Did you build the hive or purchase locally? I see that that it has windows for observing the comb building progress. Does it have frames or only the top bars? Curious to see how long it takes for them to move to the lower section.
It belongs to another beekeeper. This hive uses top bars. It does have the observation windows, it’s pretty neat. Because the bottom box didn’t have top bars on there when I hived the swarm the bees have already built fresh comb on the top box.
