I'm new to this
My French neighbours (I live in France) are keen for me to re-activate an unoccupied, but previously used hive.
OK, so I know how to clean it; they've told me how to "bait" the hive, so bees will get in and stay there.
But what else do I need to do? How do i get to the honey? When can I expect some?
Any advice (even, don't do it!) would be helpful.
