Update on the ZEST Hive

Apologies for not having posted recently - most of my regular readers will understand the reasons why.

I have a couple of updates coming about my own hives, but first I have some pictures (kindly taken by Ian) of the first couple of sessions with the ZEST hive:

Hiving the Bees

Suited up and ready!

Moving the frames out of the nucleus...

... and into the ZEST hive.

Second Inspection

Taking the roof off.

Blocks to remove.

Ready to look at the frames.

Comb building has started!

This old frame is removed, and burned.

Next time, I'll have an update about what the Beechen Bees are up to.
