Received my new 2nd Flow hive 2 Tuesday this week and got straight into assembling the hive and applying the varnish (Cedar hive this time)
Assembling the hive this time was a breeze, after learning from the first hive.
Was able to assemble and varnish on the same day
I have just placed my 2nd new flow hive in position
Purchased a nuc 6 days ago from BeeWise.
I also purchased my 1st nuc from them and found that their nuc’s produce calm bees
So I’m hoping that this 2nd nuc will be the same.
I installed the 2nd nuc in the new brood hive yesterday morning and after a quick look this morning it seem that they have settled down well.
When I transferred the nuc frames to the brood hive I noticed a lot of comb partially filled with honey and a lot of capped cells.
Hopefully this will give the bees a good start leading up to winter
The flow hive on my 1st hive has been well received by the bees, there are large numbers sealing the honey cells but at this stage no honey as yet,
I’m looking forward to next spring and hopefully do my first honey flow
