Bee arrival

Our bee family arrived today. A small but healthy family given to me by my father in law. So far they are staying in a traditional hive with Langstroth frames until the family has grown. Afterwards we will put a Honeyflow hive on top with both traditional frames and flowhive frames.

Bee keeping for beginners

We are going to keep bees – my father in law is preparing a bee family which is to move in, in our new hive this spring. We have bought at “Flow hive” from as part of a kickstarter project. It arrived last week and I assebled it without much problem in about two hours (including shooting a stop motion movie of the assembly at the same time). Here is a couple of shots of the process. The flow frame should make it easier to harvest the honey, by just turning a handle and let it flow out of the frames.
