Double Deep Long Lang Hive


#21

Here is my 3 colony double deep hive in 30C+. Lots of bees chilling out on the front.




These were started from 3 Buckfast NUCs 7 weeks ago, and the population has exploded. I tried to inspect on the weekend, but could barely see anything for the mass of bees covering every square inch of every frame; 8 double deeps each, plus a shallow comb honey super.

The Buckfast bees seem to make some beautiful comb honey.

Hello,

thanks for the update- I am very keen to see how this hive goes over time. Seems to be doing very well so far. Amazing to think you have 3 queens there working overtime. Inspections will be a huge task.

please let me know how your octagonal hive progresses too.

love your work.

I think you mean hexagonal hive…
Or Cathedral hive. :wink:
