We’ve expanded the bee yard and so are constructing a more durable electric fence around our smaller critter fence. The new fence will be 14 ga. wire and barbed sire powered by a 10 mile solar battery. The inner fence is powered by 120v. Hope to complete before next weekend.

I love solar projects and have been planning one for our hives. Amazingly this comes close to my ideas.

These are long sleeve t-shirts found on Amazon. Super light weight alternative to my bee jacket. I purchase a 4 pack made by Hanes. I ordered 2XL and sleeves are a loose fit. Using blue 5 mil nitrile gloves from Harbor Freight the gloves wrap outside the wrist covering the sleeves. Wore one today and no problems at all. I was way more comfortable.

We attended a workshop on natural beekeeping yesterday. Awesome speaker and great information. Several books were obtained at a discount. Here is a link.

Outer 2x6 boxes offer wind barrier as well as insulation wall creating a hollow tree environment for the hive boxes. Vented quilt covers with pine shavings sot under outer cover. board has been inserted under bottom board to allow minimal ventilation while quilt cover allows slow passage of warm humid hive air through the top.Will see if it works by spring. Will be inserting candy board shortly.

Just finished my first 5 frame nuc box. Followed the design used by David from you tube channel "Barnyard Bees". Wide inner cover ventilates and has room for rapid feeder allowing syrup or dry sugar to be fed and also provides ventilation. Simple outer cover just a tad wider and longer so water drips off. Will paint outside surfaces.
