A perfect sunny morning was enjoyed in a Sussex garden (light breeze, Agnus Dei thundering out of the (solar powered) shed sound system)- and I was able to finish "pimping my hive" :biggrinjester:



I tend to squirrel things away on the theory that "it'll come in useful one day" - and when I needed waterproof coating for the roof of my new bait hive, my eyes lit upon the checker plate (50p from a boot fair) -so the whole thing stands me in at about a fiver!....

More than 1, numbers seem to go up and down.
I'm not into top bar hives but that one's smart enough to almost tempt me.

Brilliant effort!

Our association purchased some hives from a retiring beekeeper"
They were national, the roofs being clad in copper sheet to the same pattern as yours .
The roofs didn't need strapping down but handling them required the deployment of a hernia truss :biggrinjester:
They were phased out for being too heavy .
Thinks :conehead:, I wonder where they're stored ??
Must be worth more than we paid for the coloniies :drool5:.
