Complete amateur here, all my knowledge is only based on stalking you fine folk and dr google / you tube. No great problems at the moment just thought I’d share.
Got a 4 frame nuc off @JeffH a few months ago and drove it the 5 hours north to Tannum Sands, Central Queensland Australia. Left it to settle in the flow hive brood box and today after a brood inspections last week I decided to have a crack and put the super on, Plenty of nectar flow going on here right now.
Did the melted bees wax trick and painted on to super frames and it worked a treat with bees instantly up in there cleaning it up.
Opted to put a ventilation hole in the roof with mesh to keep pest out… unsure if i made the right decision here to do this but will monitor how the bees react. We get pretty hot up here from now on so wanted to be ready. I also removed the front entry reducer today to open it up fully.
A few mistakes along the way so far and no doubt more to come.
Pics below if anyone is interested.
