Robo, right, I remember you speaking about using the night lite in your colonies for warmth and earlier spring build up. But, I am curious here. How do you get the nite lights in each hive? Do you have cords for each nite lite that attach to something like a power bar with multiple plugs in it? Define this for us. Have a wonderful day, great life. Cindi
I've done it multiple ways depending on how the hives are set up. I've done it from as simple as sliding the bulb/cord in from the front entrance, placing them between the screen and cover in the SBB, to building bottom boards with means to install the night lights. On my TBHs I just drilled holes in the side and mounted the lights in 1" PVC pipe that I slid into the holes. I use 2 bulbs per hive which gives 14W and provides a little redundancy when one bulb burns out. Initially I used 2 cords per hive, but now just buy sockets that clip onto the cord, so I get both bulbs on 1 cord. When I get a chance, I'll try to take some pictures for you.
