Carrying on from my last post which mentioned the reason why I have fallen behind with my blog. This post is just to mention that I have got a new Beehive and have started building it already. I won't post any pictures yet as it isn't finished but will do when I have made a super so it can be shown as a complete hive. At the moment I have finished making the stand, the brood box and the roof. This hive has been bought from a different place to my first hive and is made of ply rather than cedar; this means it doesn't have the same weather resistance so I will need to treat the wood against rot. The site I got it from is www.fragile-planet.co.uk and I will go into more details of the hive as I finish building it.
