I’m picking up some girls in December to start my first hive! Very excited to enter the world of beekeeping
I’m going to drop off my brood box to the man who will be supplying the nucleus. He will install it for me and make sure everything is running smoothly before I go back to collect the girls and take them to their new home.
I’m wondering if I should get a different roof for the brood box to make it easier to transport as the flowhive roof is a little bulky. Will a typical Langstroth (flat) lid fit the brood box? I’m just wondering if this will be easier to put some emlocks around for the trip home? Suggestions/ previous experiences welcome. Thanks!
