Getting ready for Spring



Long Langstroff Hive

Long Langstroff Hive

8 Foot Long Lang Hive
Capacity 70 Frames

After listening to The Organically Managed Bee Keeping podcast on Stitcher I decided to put together 2 Long Langstroff hives. One is 8 feet long the other is 4 feet. I used 1 inch floor ply for the sides and have two by fours on the bottom with a metal screened bottom board. The plan is to get a couple healthy colonies going and do some splits. It has dividers for splitting up the colonies and creating queens.
