5...2 wooden National, 2 poly Nat & 1 poly nuc...bursting at the seams
Just checked and the hive looks fine, no signs of EFB that I could see. I did see something I hadn't seen before though...one of the stores frames in the BB, has had a pattern of holes eaten through it, so that it looked like lace. It was on one they hadn't started to store in, but had pulled out ready for use. It was very pretty (sorry, girlie comment :p) but why do they do it?
