None, although I have my eye on one ( Just don't tell Dusty ;) )
We've just done an inspection! For some reason, between torrential rain and thunder and lightening, there was a period of about 15 mins, which coincided with the time we met for inspection! What luck! :D I must say, the rain drops were like lances but our bees were in and out. When really heavy, they flew out, then you could see them change their minds and come straight back, but only when reallyheavy. They are doing well, despite the weather :D

lol, same with my roof....speaking of propolis, do the bees not glue up your mini camera inside the hive. As you know, we are a school project and the subject of putting a cam in has been raised. Sorry, hijacking, I know......PM me if you have a mo please and tell me how you do it :)

You mean the cctv i have a colour camera that runs via 12volts in a water proof case pointing at the hive zoomed into the entrance the cable that carrys the power also carrys the video signal to my Tv in the living room,
That goes into a dvr recorder first incase i want to record it as well and the power supply is in the house safe and dry
The cable dosen't have far to go as my hive is on my flat roof where the bedrooms are total cost without Dvr about £60.00
:hurray::willy_nilly:
