    Queen Cell Incubator

    I bought one this year from the incubator shop. I find it works as it should. I use nicot cages with it, which can be a bit tight fitting in-between the plastic dividers if inserting lots of cages. I'm happy with it at the moment.

    Isn't it the old "hive clean" by bee vital? Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Nationals Vs langstroth

    Thanks for the reply, yes I have all tools and equipment to be able to make hives etc... Apart from a biscuit jointer, as with the advancement in modern glues. It has become apparent that biscuit joints don't offer any structural strength compared to just glueing with a decent glue of course...

    Nationals Vs langstroth

    That is part of the plan, hence why I'm going to keep most of my nationals. For selling nucs and bees. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Nationals Vs langstroth

    I have always had nationals, however I'm considering swapping over to mainly langstroth. I would still be keeping on the nationals that I have. Just increasing with langstroth's from next year. I have already ordered a few to get started, and to be able to get the dimensions for my own...

    Bee suit for beginner

    If you play with fire you'll get burnt. Same with bees. Could actually be good for you to get stung if your around bees and bee protein. To do with your immune cells. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Should I add a second brood box?

    Thanks for the advise. Tomorrow I will add the other brood box with drawn foundation under the current box. I have never seen so much capped brood in one box before! Do you think I should leave the super and queen excluder in place while I feed, or remove them and let them use the brood boxes...

    Should I add a second brood box?

    That's what I thinking. All the frames where full of sealed brood, then the last frame just had pollen and nectar and a lot of drones hiding out of the way. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Should I add a second brood box?

    I forgot to add that I will be feeding them as they seem a bit low. That was the reason for the inspection to check store levels. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Should I add a second brood box?

    So I had a look at one of my hives that I hadn't checked for a while. It's a poly hive with brood and super. The super has about 5-6 drawn frames the rest are partially drawn. It has the equivalent of 3 frames of stores. It was full of bees. The brood box was packed with bees and had 10 frames...
