Hive 13 [USA, Mississippi]

Post by spigot » 20 Aug 2018, 14:15

I have built 3 small hives (Hives 11,12,13) out of the intended 5, to be set up in Holly Springs, MS late March 2019. I have built the hives exactly along the recommended design. However, I have added a telescopic roof, super insulated to protect the bees from over heating in the Southern summers. Holly Springs hosts many feral bee colonies in trees and attics that swarm every single year by Mid-April until Mid-May.
