so we got our bees last Monday an installed them in the hive. This is the hive my daughter and I built, as well as some other pictures. We had comb 2 days after install.


The install went well, we did not direct release the queen.


The comb after 2 days...they move fast


My daughter with her make shift bee suit, her real suit is on backorder from Dadant.

Well the top bars work similar to the frames in a lang, but there are no sides. The bees build the comb to the shape of the hive, but without sides on the bars you have be careful how to twist and turn the bars or you will break the comb. This is our first hive and their aren't a lot of people in NH using them right now so I am still learning. The best way to learn how they work is to visit www.bushfarms.com/bees.htm it is where I got a lot of my info

What surprises me is the complete lack of fear my daughter has when dealing with the bees. She has been stung before playing in the yard. I am very proud of her.
