Update on Flow Hive and Newbies

I promised an update on how the bees and flow hive were going. We got 2 nuc’s with established queens about 10 days ago from a registered seller about 20 minutes from us. I posted pictures on Facebook. Having established queens means we should get honey this summer instead of waiting until next year. The seller told us to feed them 3 weeks. We made feeders from quart jars. We used the top boxes for this (remember we have 2 kinds of hives).
I have found the observation window on the flow hive to be great. I am able to check the feeder without disturbing them. I can also tell how active they are. So no matter whether I get more flow frames in the future or not I am going to build observation windows in my top boxes.

Enjoy the pictures!IMG_0009 IMG_0022 IMG_0029IMG_0002

  1. Bees are fascinating little creatures. Bless their hearts, they have the weight of the world on their tiny shoulders, without them we humans would be in trouble.
    I hope you get lots of yummy honey.
    I look forward to your updates.
