Hive assembly

Assembling a flat packed hive is not difficult if you follow a logical approach. Included here are instructions detailing how to assemble an open mesh floor, brood box, super and roof.

You will need a hammer and waterproof glue. A tape measure is also useful as you can use this to check that the assembly is square by checking that the diagonals are equal.
