I have built three this spring and am building more. I think my cost is about $35 that is with buying material. A durable wind proof lid is the most expensive feature.
Once in a lifetime event
Bees are going in a corner tile to a double brick wall 20 ft off the ground. They are not going up under the tile, would have been easier :(
I think i have all the entrances closed...
Good for you looks nice. Hank
All I know is I am not brave enough to work my bees in flip flops.
I got a hive in a terra cotta roof anyone with any first hand experience? They are going in at a bottom corner not sure the extent of the colony, going to look it over further tomorrow. I really...
Nice work. What equipment did you shoot that on?
Suppose to be in the 50s today 60s tomorrow. So I might try tomorrow at noon that will be 72 hrs in the containers and given the cold weather install post last month I think that would be best.

These guys sell them for colony establishment.
Was thinking it would be a nice way to expand. Not real...
Is that 2 leaf blowers?
Then wash your hands or use a potato masher.
Interesting. I cut them some foundation with an 8" x 4" trapezoid I was going to give each 4 of these stacked next to one another and have 4 other bars with molding comb guides. This would give them...
I was thinking the same thing but I don't have any Langs right now as I have had a long hiatus from keeping. I did cheat and split a few top bars and put small cell foundation in them.
