Beekeeping equipment

Wow! I haven't posted in over two months! I guess I've been neglecting my blog. Anyway I got home with my beekeeping stuff around Jan. 31st. Anyway, I guess there isn't much to say but I'll let the pictures explain it.

A picture of when I first got my beekeeping equipment.

A picture of a finished beehive with a smoker on top.

A frame with plastic foundation in it. Bees draw out the foundation making hexagonal cells for storing honey, brood, pollen etc.

There are ten frames in each hive box.

Here's a picture of me snapping in plastic foundation into the frame.

Here's a picture of the parts of the hive. This will need enlarged.
