Preparing for the 2015 Beekeeping Season

Lots of work is in the planning stages for the 2015 beekeeping season. There are boxes to build, frames to assemble, foundation to install – oh – and did I ever mention a barn to build at Wolfsong Farm? This should give me a secure space to keep my beekeeping woodenware and equipment.

Plans are to create splits from the strong hives, and bump-up some of the hives to 10-frame boxes that survive from the 5-frame nuc boxes that some are currently in.

To build:  10-Frame langstroth hives, frames, bottom-boards, inner covers, telescoping covers

Maintenance:  Repaint woodenware with worn paint and exposed bare wood
