    Default Ulster observation hive has anyone used these at shows??

    I have been invited to speak at a retirement group and want to make a Ulster observation hive. I was wondering about the plans and things to do or not do.
    Has anyone used this type at shows and fairs? Any tips.

    Thanks

    I have been making a 5-frame medium Ulster styled hive. I used a finger jointed box from Brushy Mountain because I knew that the boxes would look nice varnished.

    I decided to use glass, and it is supported by a piece of plastic queen excluder slid into a notch.

    I need to get it finished because it will be used in a presentation in 10 days.

    I use one every year at a couple schools. I will be using one tomorrow with some 7th and 8th grades. I find it works well, is easy to load and unload and very portable.

    I have used them. Just don't pick it up by the middle of the top... it can bend and let a bee out...
