    Default Hive inspection photos

    I got my dad and wife to take some photos this weekend when I was going through my hives.

    Here's the link if you want to take a look.

    Wow, looks great! As a beginner, it would be great if you could put some details as to what some of the photos show - but I know that is time consuming - thanks for the photos, I enjoyed them very much. I second the applause on involving the little ones!

    Enjoyed your photos. They tell me here in California that bees don't like plastic but it looks like they were lying to me! Nice brood pattern and healthy looking. So, you have two hives, each one a single deep and that's it? If so, wow.

    Nice Pics.
    What are you using for smoker fuel? I never get that much smoke out of mine with cotton fiber.
