Hey all, got all my boxes and frames and stands and everything ready, just waiting on the word to pick up my nucs for the year and wanted to get some input on location.
I have a double lot at my place, the grass backyard ends in a downslope to a wooded backlot and I had originally planned to put the hives down in the backlot. Now I'm wondering if it'll be too shaded down there or if they'll be under too much of a leaf canopy. I could also put them at the edge of the lawn before the downslope but they would be under one big tree instead of a bunch of little ones. One each? Both in the backlot? Both in the backyard? I'm struggling to choose, as both have obvious pros and cons. Thanks in advance for any input!
