Hi all and apologies if this has been discussed before.
I have a Langstroth hive that I am finding hard to keep on top of due to disability so I purchased a Flo hive .
I have been painting the outside of the hive for weather protection with non toxic/harmful stain. when putting the hive back together I noticed there is no access for a waste collection board at the bottom of the hive.
The second thing I have noticed is regarding the Flo cells. I was given the long metal key along with the honey flow pipes but at the top of each cell front there is no key access, just the plastic cap then you can see the cells within so why the key?
The third is a question regarding the brood box. This has no frames, am I better purchasing frames for this or should I just let the bee’s get on with it?
