What time is it when you have too many bee swarms? Time to buy more beekeeping equipment. After more success than I planned on when I was building hive components over the past winter, today Aaron and I drove down to rural St. Peter, Illinois, to buy deep hive boxes and frames. Jason Weaver builds quality boxes out of cypress wood and orders frames from Dadant. 10 hive boxes with frames equals more money than I wanted to spend, but it will hopefully ensure my new swarms will have enough food for the winter months.
