My first hive has arrived. :0)

I ordered it last week from Caddon Hives (www.caddon-hives.co.uk) up in Galashiels. They do a brilliant starter kit for Newbees like me. It includes all the basics including bee suit, gauntlets, smoker, hive tool etc.

I decided on a National Hive in kit form as I wanted the experience of putting it together myself. I figured I’d understand a bit more about it if I had to put it together. It’s made of Western Red Cedar and at first glance all the joints look nice and tight so should be nice and strong once glued and pinned. I’ll post pictures once I start putting it together.
