    Hello there,
    My name is Mark, I am a general contractor and also a nature and wildlife photographer. My wife and I started two back yard hives last month and we are loving it! we inspected them last week and hive #1 and they had already had comb drawn with eggs, lava and capped cells. we started hive #2 a week after the first hive so they were still drawing out the comb.

    Oh...
    They told us we had to paint the boxes :lol:

    My wife did the art work.
