Thanks for your warm welcome.

I will try to answer some of the questions.

The hives types mainly used in PT are "Lusitana" developed by a priest and more adapted to PT environment and local bees.

Then the hive evolved to "Reversível" which means that we can use the frames aligned with the bees entrance or put the frame perpendicular to the entrance, if we which that.

This hive pack has Reversível (9) and Langstroth (3) hives.

The bees are iberian black bee (two hives) and the rest Buckfast
