Well its heading into winter down under and I figured the 19 mm/ 3/4" red cedar digs needed to be upgraded for the ladies. My theory is the less energy expended on trying to keep warm the more energy for maintenance for coming months. 45 mm / 1- 3/4" thick red cedar walls worked out well. I also replaced the old bottom board with the new one Flow sent to replace the defective one. I think i’ll replace the wire mesh on the old board, and with the brood box I am not using this winter… - who would have guess it…I have the makings of another hive Now I have to build a cool looking roof for the new hive!! I wonder how long it will take my wife to figure out??
Thanks again to Flow Hive for the support.
