Hive Type
Number of Hives
1 Brought on Sunday 6th June 2010 & Now Have 9 Hives
After buying equipment over the last ten years i have at last bitten the bullet and brought a hive of bees i brought a complete hive with bees from a gentelman who had been doing it for years and was cutting down on numbers i looked at the bees for the first time on sunday and i saw the Queen on the second frame in which pleased me plus worker and drone brood....

After looking through all the photos on this site there is a mixture of both i always thought the frames should run from the front of the hive to the back but the one i have brought they run left to right and all the bees are on the frames at the back of the have rather than in the middle is this normal?

Many Thanks
