holes in hives!
« on: September 13, 2013, 05:24:16 PM »
I fed my 10 hives yesterday and then spent about half an hour afterwards tapeing up all the holes where they were getting in to rob each other out! - it was like trying to keep water in a sieve! So right now the hives are 90% duct tape! I really need to get new hives next spring! These hives must be about 100 years old!!

Buy better quality duct tape.  The prices over there are murder!
