Getting Ready

I know its early but ive started getting ready for the swarm season. Mann Lake were having a sale a few weeks ago so I ordered another 10 brood boxes and frames. Im going to make my own floors, roofs and crown boards this year, thats my next job. I also bought another 3 poly nucs from my local bee club.

I liberated some polystyrene boxes from work (free), they will make a nice 9 frame nuc box without too much work going into it. Still needs a little tweaking and I’ll need to lake a lid for it. It will take national frames and 14×12. Theres a 4 inch gap at one end, this is a good space for a feeder.

I bought a little endoscope last week so I could put it in the beehive and see what the bees are up to. Check it out on my Face book page at https://www.facebook.com/The-Bee-Yard-636954833071308/  Im going to put it in my top bar this weekend, that should be interesting. I’ll post some more pictures and videos if it works out.
