|Blue=existing entrances. Red=new ones.
|Awwwwwww. Cute little nuc box.
So now I have a 44" top bar hive, a 30" top bar hive, and a 14" 8-bar nuc box. Ain't it kayewt?! I've always wanted a cute little top bar nuc box. Only thing left to do is fashion a top. Not sure what I want to do for one yet, so that'll wait for another day.
|Feeder w/follower & divider boards either side.
Spot of melted wax, too - hot out already. UGH.
I'll keep the follower boards that bees can get around so I can feed them in the empty cavity part of the top bar. But now I have options, man. Options are nice. And are all easily stored at one end 'til you need them. You can always make one divider board, then drill a couple holes in it and add a swing-cover of sorts - then you'll have both in one board. I'll probably do that next time I build one from scratch instead of redo an existing one.
