My hive with out the bee's yet in it. The circle on the side is a window I put into the side so I can get a look at the bees in "their element". The metal things sticking out of the side are my hive rests (a structure to keep the frames on when inspecting them)
I would like to thank my parents for funding this project especially my dad who helped me build the hive one long saturday afternoon, and my mom and friend monica for helping me paint them.
