    Hive for sale

    FYI VEG The price depends on how many you want. I admit I am slow to reply as running the number of hives that I do, does not leave a lot of time to answer. A PM can get a discount from me. They are all off to an auction soon so grab them while you can, I need the space. Regards Mike Auction...

    Yes I agree, Woodpeckers usually go for the handholds on hives and they always seem to manage to get through close to the brood. I cover my hives with old cherry nets, just as good as wire netting and take up less room than wire netting when they are taken off in the spring. Regards Mike
