Build it and they will come.................

There has been an enormous amount of Building and painting going on here! We are getting ready to add 15 more nucleus colonies to our Bee yard and hoping to go into winter with 40+ hives. My husband hand builds all of his own equipment.. (with Help from me and our daughter of course ;)
We are gearing up for the 2014 Garden and Bee season as are the Honeybees! There is fresh Brood in the Hives and they are bringing in pollen ( they feed the pollen to the brood/baby bees).. :)

A shed full of hives


Safety first ..hehe

Building hive covers

The Queen is marked with A red dot. If you look on the top left, you can see brood.

until Next time,,
