    Re: 5 frame nuc entrance?

    4 years ago a made a bunch of the plywood nuc boxes for growing nucs and making splits. I made all the entrances round and with a disk. No regrets there. Makes moving splits a whole lot easier.

    Re: DIY Electric fence...help!

    Sorry Radar. Should have mentioned that. It's cows. I've never had hives in the same field as cattle. Most folks have said that cows won't bother them UNLESS they need to scratch. Then they tend...
