Setting up the apiary with 5 young colonies, March 2022

First extension of the colonies with a second brood chamber, April 2022

Swarming control, May 2022

One of our hives is equipped with windows, allowing a view into the colony from all sides.

This was not planned! But we could catch the swarm and obtain an additional colony.
