The first picture is of the inner cover. It has a notch on the bottom side of it for the bees to come and go. It now sits ontop of a shallow honey super.

The second picture is a frame covered with bees on both sides.

The third picture is of bees drawing out comb. If you look carefully you can see where they have gotten to on that frame.

The fourth icture is of a queen excluder. This keeps the queen from laying brood in the honey for human consumption. She can not fit thru the bars.

we only have two and half acers it is not your land they need just the surronding 2 1/2 miles or more that they fly in to get flowers. There are people in Nashville doing it in their tiny back yard. They had an ad on craigslist for honey. It is in a small back yard in a subdivision in the middle of Nashville.

the honey super is a shallow box for honey for human consumption. The large box in the bottom holds the queen and all the workers and brood. We will add another deep super when they get thru filling up the shallow one for their winter stores. The bee keeper we are working with said to go ahead and add the honey super because we have so much blooming right now.

Very nice pictures. My cousin has bees but I have never been around them. They are very interesting. I have read a lot about bee keeping
