    Queen excluders are not necessary to run a beehive, they are just helpful (a lot). All you really have to do is switch the two brood boxes every once in a while to trick the queen into thinking she can just keep moving up forever. Nevertheless, I do like excluders because they are helpful.

    He left out 1 item,if you add” supers” in order to aquire honey,you must add a “Queen Excluder” between them,this keeps the Queen from laying eggs in the upper Boxes or (Supers). HEHEHE. :-) . I Just Love Bees!!.I been a BeeKeeper for 20yrs,and i never grow tired of them.. D. :-)

    no you dont have to but the hive will be very uneven if you dont = harder to work with the bees.

    do you have to put foundation on the frames for them to build come i thought they make the wax in their abdomen then regurgitate it and build an octagonal comb

    Thanks for taking the time to film and post this. I’m getting ready to start my first hive (first I have to put the boxes together!), so any info I can get is helpful. Thanks!

    These wax combs can be started by the bees. (If) You place a foundation with a drawing (impression in thin wax) of the comb in it so the bees from there (this) grow the foundation. We have an example here see.
    This is the basic beehive but when it grows you need to add more room or another “super” with frames of course..

    It is composed by (of) a floor, a birth chamber, also called a super for the queen to lay (her) eggs in and a top.
    This birth-chamber has frames. He counts 8 with wax combs in them.

    Is he saying ‘comb’? They take the foundation and build the camp/comb/cap up?! I haven’t got a clue what he is talking about. Can anyone out there illucidate?

    He has a strong accent. He said COMB! I had to see this video twice to understand him!
