Beekeeping experience with the small horizontal hive.
2 posts • Page 1 of 1
I have built 3 small hives (Hives 11,12,13) out of the intended 5, to be set up in Holly Springs, MS late March 2019. I have built the hives exactly along the recommended design. However, I have added a telescopic roof, super insulated to protect the bees from over heating in the Southern summers. Holly Springs hosts many feral bee colonies in trees and attics that swarm every single year by Mid-April until Mid-May.
The hive was set up on the property of Strawberry Plains Audubon Center, in Holly springs Mississippi on the 24th of March 2019. 3 identified feral colonies are present on the property, 2 in the attic of the Davis house and 1 in a hollow red cedar.
