Out of curiosity if you were building your own hives and used metal, lets say screws for example. how would the bees react to it and would it have any adverse effect on the honey,

Miki there is no problem with metal in a hive. The queen excluder is from metal and if the bees don’t like your screws they cover the head with propolis.

Thanks, good to hear from you again.
I'm buying my first four hives from Herr Suttner in Vilseck thanks for all the info it has been a great help. If you have time could you shoot me an e-mail I have a few Europe specific questions. The E-mail I use here is secure no one else can get your address.
