I started one May 1st as well, I used a small swarm to start it with. It is only starting the second box right now. I'm actually not super impressed with the warre hive yet, but what can I really expect six weeks in right?
The built in plexiglass windows in mine are nice though. My daughter is highly entertained by opening it up and watching the bees, I'm constantly catching her out back staring into it.
