(We) eldest son has bees. He picked up a six frame nucleus from Penzance last night, in a couple of weeks time he will collect another.
The photos show the hive how it was for travelling. Today, ( I really must learn about bees! I think this is right ), a dummy board was added either side of the foundation boards? a crown was added to the top of the brood box and the feed bucket added to that, two supers were then added before the lid to cover the feed bucket ; -) in other words the hive is now bigger than in the photo! I will learn, I have just ordered a jacket and gloves....so no excuses now.
