Nice strong looking hives, especially the one on the left. I like your hive stand. If you put another hive on it, you may need a center leg. Good luck with the additional hives.

Funny you should say that asprince.
 Just a few weeks ago I had to lift the back up(and front) as it started sinking in the dirt...I didnt put any feet on it originally. This is made of "Dexion". Its a type of galvanized angle iron with patterns of holes in it.Kind of like a "Grown-ups erector set". The military used to use it alot but during the last 20 years The military has gone to pre-fab shelving.....theres not too many people around anymore who know how to actually use this stuff.ok,...seeya later!

John, so nice to see those pictures, glad you are getting them on the forum now.  They look lovely set in the trees like that, I love to look at beehive pictures, takes me into those beautiful days of summer.  Have a great day.  Cindi

John, OK, you got me laughing out loud.  Bet you got some great pics of the bee stings to show us.  Start that thread!!!  Be the first to show off the big fat bee sting bodies, should all be good for a laugh or two, go for it, just do it.  Have the best and wonderful day, Cindi
