Since I'm re-starting after a 50 year hiatus, I built 3 Langs figuring that was the way to go. After connecting with a local gentleman with a 50 years history of keeping bees, he asked me to explore/experiment with a TBH.


These bees came from a wild swarm 5 weeks ago, about 5 miles away from me. This is the first hive I had with a window and I can see where it'll get used.


They have drawn out at least a 3rd


They are bringing in loads of pollen and nectar, the very late spring in this area has helped with trying to get this swarm settled. Honey already in the new comb.
