Simple way to Tie in Comb

Bees are very adaptable about working around things that we do. See the queen?

 

A scrap of 1/2" x 1" mesh hardware cloth can be used as a very easy way to hang broken comb in frames - or as in these pictures from top bars.

If you ever do bee removals you might have to attach natural comb into a hive setup.  This is just one of many ways.  Probably one of the easier ways for top bar hives.

Don’t Forget – We will not be having a “regular” meeting for the month of May – instead  on Saturday May 5 at 2:30 in the afternoon we will be having a field day where we will actually get to work with bees.   This will happen at the TTU apiary which is located across the road (Old Gainesboro Grade / 12th street / TN state Rt 290) from the Hyder-Burks Agriculture Pavilion.

Bee suits will be optional, but Everyone Must Wear a Veil.  More information will follow – but please pass it around.
