I have re-positioned the hives a bit to protect them as much from the strong South-West wind. I have also build a proper base for the hives. I had some concrete blocks on the farm and I imagined this to be their best purpose. The whole stand is leveled properly. It is very important to level the top bar hives otherwise the comb might be angled once build by the bees. Bees do follow gravity so should we ;) This stand can hold 8 nucleus hives. Im trying to prepare the apiary for the incoming bee colonies of mine which are to be moved on the April 20th from Sweden to our farm in Denmark (3 hour journey).
I keep on building more top bar hives for the splitting/swarming season which is arriving very soon. I hear some colonies in Germany and England already swarmed!!! Get you r boxes ready dear friends of the bees :)
