Hi, I'm about to harvest my hive today, this is my first time so a bit nervous.
Do I give the complete hive a thorough a once over while I am there? I need to replace the brood super as it is starting to show signs of opening up so I was going to do both of them at the same time and put my new plastic base board on as well.
Should I do this later?
Also I have made a stand for under neath my base board from treated deck timber which protrudes out the front of my purchased base board.This is also treated but not in the hive obviously, is that ok?
