Log Cabin – Hive Duplication

I decided to set up one of my Log Cabins for Budding (Hive Duplication). This process could be done with just about any kind of empty box. I thought it might be better to do it this way than to split a hive because then you will have to split it back after a year to get the matching top and bottom boxes.

Having the removable top (honey super) and the clear Perspex windows allows you to check the progress for a while, atleast until the bees block it out with their structure.
