Not going so well. When last I looked the bees were in the hive box on frame 1 & 2. Since then they have found some new ways out and are not in the hive anymore.
Needs a better fit
Fortunately there has been little movement between the tree & the hive. The tube is the weak point. I need to make a better cover for the tree too.
To many gaps
Tomorrow I'll get some more material at the home store. Much work has gone into this attempt. To much for me to give up on. Looks like my Memorial Day will be spent in a tree!
