Visiting My Secret Beehive

A quick drop in on the only beehive I have that has a deep. My other seven hives are all-medium construction, which I hope plays out well for me (so far so good), because I’ve pretty much cut all my deeps down to mediums.

P.S.: Dummy boards are also known as follower boards.

(I’ve created a special tag just for this hive, Giant Hive 2021, so everything I’ve written about it can be viewed in sequence.)

  1. Try using masking tape for the hive bodies that don’t exactly fit together.

    • I’ve used duct tape over the years. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. I’ve also heard that Gorilla tape creates the best seal for winter weather.

      I actually found something today to fill in the cracks between the supers, but I’m not going to say what it is just yet because if I mention it, I know I’m going to get looks like I’ve got a screw loose. It’s a bit out there. Or it’s a flash of genius. I’ll eventually write a post about it — if it works.
