Nice job Rail! I like that top cover.  Smiley

Thanks, had some Red Oak boards around the shop and decided to fabricate one from other peoples ideas and experience. Put three coats of Walnut oil on the outside surfaces, seems to be doing well. We have had heavy rains the past two days.

They are bringing in pollen this morning, should I increase the size of the entrance for them?

The bees are bringing in pollen. Not feeding much from the feeders? Outside air temp. 73 degrees.

When I opened the outer cover to check the feeders, sounds of bacon frying?

Well, that sounds familiar.

After I took the block out of the robber screen they stopped.  So far things look good, and I'm waiting for them bees to make BEES.

Opened the hive to remove the queen cage, they released her. Building comb on four of the eight frames. Docile.
