One word of caution though...pay more attention to your bee space around your outer frames. It shows most in pic 8 and 24. The frames should all be jammed together, then the remaining space should be split between the hive wall and frame 1, and frame 10 and the hive wall. The way you have frames up against the hive wall creates the absolute perfect hiding place for hive beetles. Don't ask me how I learned that.... :no:
It's almost exactly 6 weeks old Needo. that's impressive! What gave it away?
I'll pay more attention to bee space next time I open them up. To date, I've seen exactly three SHB, but it's not quite hot enough for them yet from what I'm told. I'm going to have to reverse my boxes soon.
