Sweet! My first viable hive I have is a swarm I caught about 5 weeks back and put it in a Top Bar Hive I made using cove mold upside down as my guides and they have that box almost half way drawn out and the over all box is 4 ft long. Straight cone and a sight to see. Will get good honey production this year for sure. Looking for my next swarm to place in a sister hive I built the same time.

The fear of the Lord is clean,enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea ,than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
