Heavy duty hive work

This was a first.

I gave a hand yesterday in starting the long process of re-homing some neglected hives. It’s the first, and I hope the last time, that I will need a hammer, crowbar and power-saw to open a bee hive.

The boxes were badly rotted and needed total replacement

Hmm… where to start.



After 15 years, the boxes were just a block of burr comb.

Hive one finished and the girls march back home…

Time for the saw.


All done, welcome back home girls.
