H Hive

H hive is in a commercial box.

It has been occupied by a swarm from Fettiplace Road in Barton since late June 2017. These are from the same feral colony that populated Hive E.

The colony got off to a bad start when I moved it from a National nucleus box to a Commercial box. I put the frames at the back, which weakened the door defence and led to robbing. The colony absconded so I re-hived them and moved them to Headington.
