The brood box is nearly finished. Ive filled any gaps on the outside with a little wood filler and gave it all a quick sanding down. The first coat of bee friendly paint is on and looks better already. The metal runners have been ordered and should be delivered on Monday.
Next project is a perone style hive. This is a basic box, I’m making it the size of a national. Ill be adding a floor, lid and top bars over the next week. This will be used as a bait hive in spring, see if we can get a swarm interested
