Yesterday my husband picked up some old bee equipment. The lady who gave it to him said that her late husband was a beekeeper and she just wanted to be rid of the old equipment. It had been in her backyard for over 10 years under a tree. He brought home 8 old beehive deeps and 2 supers. They will need paint, cleaning and and new frames (or foundation).
This weekend we will start cleaning them up and will post before and after photos.
