Re: Today in the Apiary
Hi Delta 21, the hives looks good! If you look in the archives here search for "Golden Mean Hive from Backyardhives" there is a thread there that talks about the hive you are building. Someone mentioned a problem with the roof they made and has other tidbits of info in there. Check out Wyatt Mangums books. Anyway, I had the privilege of attending a Club meeting where C. Hemenway spoke. I have langs and one top bar which didn't do very well; it was newly made by a friend and I coated the inside with melted wax, propolis and honey ( for that "homey" touch) I put a package in and they superseded the queen. It was a small hive but is still going now. I am reading up on a Lazutin hive which is extra deep and set up like a long lang. The book I am reading is Keeping Bees With a Smile by Fedor Lazutin. Good luck and have fun.
