ok, just two of them.

Someone gave me a swarm and a friend of mine hived it in one of his boxes a couple of weeks ago, here is the link to show the image of the queen.

When I built my hive I used foundationless frames, I had to retie the combs on with string, the picture below is of one of the outer combs.
It is so cool, and there is capped brood on other frames, next week I will take more photo's. I am an artist and I think that picture of the comb is one of the most gracefull things I have seen.
Unless she is wearing bluejeans.

Donn,

I'm using 1 inch starter strips
I started the hive 8 weeks ago, but this frame has been in 1 week

Dave,
the photo is great,
do you have any pictures of comb and what is in them?

The photo is great but the comb is empty that is in the picture.

I thought my hive was weak and someone gave me a frame of capped brood and that spurred the work on.

Donn,

Go here

http://68.142.29.112/bee's/

it's a series of pictures of an inspection i did at about 5 weeks
I started em from a package
They were really booming then
At that point I gave em a frame of SC foundation.
Last week I gave em a medium box of SC starter strips
This is a pic of a full sheet of SC at 3 weeks

I am such a newbie
but what I have come to think about my hive is the temperature issue.
they need sun, they need to warm up.
they are solar powered.

How much direct sunlight does the hive get?

My hive is in the edge of some woods and only get's scattered sun
The general consensus here seems to be I should move it to a sunnier spot
I'm in North Carolina and it's pretty hot here, I don't think temp is the issue, I think it's more humidity and thinking a sunny spot dries out faster. Humidity  promotes some diseases.
