Warre Hive on the Roof

1 Apr

For my birthday, Marla built me a gorgeous Warre style hive.  It’s about 97% done – the observation doors need knobs and insulation – but other than that, she’s complete and gorgeous and on the roof waiting for tenants.

Speaking of tenants – they’ll be here tomorrow!

Mel also had a hive opening today so we could get up close and personal.  I took a few pictures.

His ladies have been busy!

    Nice site! It can get hot up there on the black rooftop. I have 3 rooftop hives and I have to put down a piece of white pvc under the hives to keep the temperature cool enough for them. In the summer it can get 30 plus degrees hotter up there on the first two feet above the rooftop.

      How can you tell that it’s too hot for them? I’d love to know the signs!
