Hello everyone,

We are situated in a rural area the middle of France and have just
acquired our first colony which we transferred into our home-made
beehive (based on Dadant) which accommodates 6 Flow Frames.

If you are interested, here is a short video about it. The video is in Dutch, with English youtube subtitles:



Cheers!

You might want to check those hives with a level. It could be an illusion, but if the hives aren't level it's going to cause trouble.

Thanks for the reply and the suggestion, Cj Sloane!

I did check and correct it with a level before placing the hive. It is indeed a case of optical illusion, because it is a sloping terrain.

Cheers!
