The hive equipment arrived today. We are going to attempt a split on last year’s hive. W is building the boxes but the frames are easier (and cheaper) to order and assemble. Two natural pollen patties came in as well, to give the bees the boost to produce young since the winter is never ending here. A new hive tool, a couple of metal queen extruders( we didn’t like the plastic one we tried, nothing got past it),and a screened bottom board…we are so ready for the big thaw.
If you have questions just give them a call and talk to Ruth, she’s fabulously friendly and knowledgeable.
