Setting Up Your Bee Yard - Setting Up the Hive

By Mindy03
October 21, 2011

Now that you have selected the location for your bee yard it’s time to select your hive and set it up. A hive can be considered to be a manufactured home for bees. Early hives were crude shelters made of any material easily procured in the beekeeper’s locale.

As usual Mindy, you have written an informative & concise article.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I have wanted to for years, but just thought about it because we didn't have any place to put them. After we leave Korea, we are planning to live in a sunnier, more garden-friendly spot and I will finally have my bees, too Big Grin

Probably 2 years. It is so hard to tell with all of the downsizing they are doing. We are guaranteed one more year...
