Installing the beehive

At this point Lefteris (the beekeeper) has applied a few coats of linseed oil to all the parts of the hive. He also painted the exterior with bright colors.

Next we wood burned the number of the hive using a burning stamp.

We went to the bee place and Lefteris prepared smoke using dry pine needles to keep the bees calm.

Next he took ready made frames from a grown hive and placed them in the new one.

We examined the bees for a while and we were pretty much done.

I want to thank Lefteris and Giannis for all the help.

You can also watch how the beehive was done here:
