    Yeah they seem to go anywhere there's a good spot. They're always found in watermeter boxes. The ground would provide good insulation.

    I have been flat out in the shed for the last few months, a bit obsessed with woodwork at the moment, a few new tools and shed upgrades, i'll have to make some new posts. I haven't had much time to make all my chatter posts on this forum so I feel I've been neglecting the forum a bit. I'm on holidays at the moment so I have some spare time, so it's a couple of arvo drinks and spam the forums! :cheers:

    Here's a few boxes I have been working on..

    The Treasure Chests...

    Log Cabins... (old cabin left new updated design right)

    My goodness Stevo, you have been busy!
    Such artified bee houses.
    Do they get any sort of scaffolds attached inside to start off with?

    cheers Clissa. I've been on holidays from my normal day job but I have been flat out in the shed so I haven't stopped really. I return to work on Monday so life will return to normal then... maybe ...

    When you split a hive they will have the old half full of structure and quickly build new structure in the new half, like a scaffold. The scaffold can then support their pollen and honey pots.
