I detached the empty hive, as there are no more swarms to expect this year.
One wax starter strip was partially detached.
The sailing rope was damaged.
Hive mount : the screw of the vertical bar was broken.

Package bees from a local beekeeper were put into the still empty hive. Red queen from 2018. Candi (1 kg) was placed on the bottom of the hive.
