The pictures included – show the manner in which my hives are set up for ease of working.
Just at a good height for handling frames and when the lid is lifted off and placed upside down
to the right of the hive and slightly in front, the height of the hive is about correct for me to swing
supers off and placed on top of the lid – the hive mat can be placed over the supers to control bee
flight. The club apiary hives will be set in the same manner
The wooden structure was built by Peter and provides a sound platform at a good height for working
You will note in both cases that the HIve Doctor – 2nd generation base is being used – minor modifications
have been made to this 2nd generation base and have overcome a problem with the underlay apertures
