Bee Vlog - April 14, 2012

A very nice day for an inspection! I was able to get a good look at the comb the bees have built out. Queen Anne has been very busy laying eggs.

I got the design ideas for the portable hivescale from It's a great tool to have and was relatively cheap to build.

It's swarm season here in Oregon and I'd like to try to catch one. I built and installed a bait hive in my backyard. The internal dimensions of the box are 14" tall, 19-3/4" long, 8" wide. Some 1x2 on the sides allow the frames to hang. It's a little tricky getting the bottom row of frames in, but they fit just perfectly.
