Used Top Bar HIve

Went to Niwot to purchased a used top bar hive for $55. Gal built it herself from used cabinet wood. She also filled me with lots of information to get started using the hive, catching a swarm, and extracting honey and wax.

Paint Stripping

Not sure if this stuff is safe for the bees, but gave it a try anyway. Not sure it was worth the trouble.
