The bees aren't in the hives and they are running free out of their shipping packages?

Hmmmm . . . . .

Installing packages in 2-story (too big) hives?

Hive entrances in shade behind brush?

Hives sitting unsecured atop supporting rails?

Oh, I know -- the lip edge of the inner cover isn't painted!

Do I get a cookie???     :-D

Your inner covers have no beespace? 1 hive went in already and the other 2 did not?
Enlighten us, please.

with the picture...
you have to bright background, the fella that is sort of in the picture, well his/hers head is missing, the left hive should also be in the picture fully
and now i've noticed the thing you're probably aiming at.
the second(the inner hive) upper box (medium is it??) has the left handle upside down, anyway it's not right.

the main thing I see wrong is installing packages in with the medium on also, should always let them draw out the deep before put second story on, and aint that something about the handle, looks like Cody didn't catch that when he was putting them together  :-D

I guess theres a hole in the top of the covers. Id have dumped em on the ground, but I dont know jack about bees really.

I doubt you will use the handles on the widest part of the super anyway. I dont.

Wow, don't those hives look so nice and clean.  Mine used to look like that too.  Now I am repainting all the boxes, they got pretty grungy looking after the bees' season.  Nice pictures.  Have a wonderful day.  Cindi
