    Growing up ... gradually, according to the natural compass ... without stretching nature.

    Nice looking spring bees Eduardo!
    Keep them out of the trees and good success this season.

    Very nice. Good population, fantastic brood frame!

    With our discussions on Opening the Sides of the Broodnest, I am wondering if you did OSBN on this hive or on any of your other hives? Or do you have enough drawn comb?

    It would be great to see the initial comb that is built, to see how much old wax is used to make new comb.

    Not bad Matthew.
    I have not yet used OSBN. In these last two years I have managed to keep a good number of drawn comb for the next season. In the future I will use it as a strategy to prevent or delay swarming.

    So far I have done it this way (picture below) but the OSBN seems to me more appropriate.

    Ok, nice.

    Would you mind if that photo is shared on the OSBN thread?
