Pollination Box

I recently purchased a new Pollination Box sold by Sugarbag Bees because i was interested in the design of the box. This box is designed with the purpose for crop pollination on farms. It’s a PVC construction and has no honey super top frame so isn’t intended for honey extraction.

 

lets get some bees in!!!

Below: 20/07/2018 – Establishing bees in the bottom box. I’ve split one of my hives and used just the new empty white pollination bottom box. Later I’ll split this and put the white matching box on top to complete it.

 

Below; 06/11/2018 – The photo below shows the progress roughly three months after the split. The brood is going well. Front of the box with the entry hole is at the left of the photo, showing plenty of stores, the back of the box on the right is still empty.
