This article will show the process and progress of Budding / Eduction using the Nativo Box.
**Disclaimer – This is just the way i’m doing it, I’m not following any instructions or recommendations from the box designer. This may not be the method they recommend.
The Nativo box has a vent hole in the bottom so I made a tube to connect from the full hive colony to the new empty Nativo box. I taped a clear viewing sheet on top of the box so it’s completely sealed all around.
Below – In place in the garden. I used the mesh covered tube to lock the bees up for a day or two while they get use to the new box.
