OK, yesterday I completed my photography of my TBH #1.
You should be able to see it at
Please let me know if you have trouble accessing it. If you run the slide show you will get a full description of the date of the picture and some of the details.
My new triangular bar had mixed results. One came out perfect, but another one (#25) had two combs built on it. It is 1 1/2 inches. I am thinking that maybe better to run the 1 1/2's in the middle of the hive and put the 1 1/4's on the ends.
At this point in the hive most of the brood is furthest from the entrance hole.
Enjoy! FYI my smoker petered out early on into the inspection yesterday but insteady of relighting I just kept going, that is why there are so many bees in the pics.
