So we are all new to beekeeping, The 2 hives we have are an 8 Frame, Not really any deep hive body's, all the same size, (medium box's) 5 high. The bottom three will be for the bees, and we will get the top 2 Boxes when time comes. We just received our Bees yesterday! Placed them in the hives, Checked on them last night before coming in for the evening. Going to check on them today just to make sure they all made it in the hives.
