I hope our future bees like blue because that’s what color their new house is going to be. Apparently they don’t like red, which is the other color of exterior paint we have left over from the cornhole project.
10,000 bees are scheduled to arrive on May 2.
Steve’s been gradually putting the hive together with a little help from the rest of us.
The boxes are officially called supers and each holds 10 frames, with a foundation sheet upon which the honeycomb will be built.
This hive will have 5 supers and can accommodate 50,000 bees.
