Here i go,this is the first post so bare with me, I have been trying to take in all the information i can. I have one two year old hive that is going great and two more that I just got out of a trap out. I know it is late to start new hives, they were in a church and the timing had to be now. I uses a wire cone and so far so good, they are still coming out, I have a full box there now and will replace it with a new one. I want to say HI and thank all of you for the great information.
