Painting Hives

After four years of beekeeping in top bar hives, I’ve decided to move my bees into Langstroth hives.

I’ve got nothing against top bar hives … I just feel in need of a change. Each type of hive has its strengths and weaknesses and with that comes beekeeping skills particular to that type of hive.

It was an easy assembly to put the boxes together with a bit of glue and some brad nails.
The hives are now getting painted one of my favourite shades of green.
