#Keep the first frame out of the hive and put it onto a special holder or onto the roof. By doing this, you will have some extra room for handling the other frames in the box.
#Inspect one frame and put it back before taking out the next one.
#Always keep the frame with the bees above the open hive. This way, the bees and queen will drop back into the hive if they are clustering in the frame’s frame's corner.#Don´t Don't shake the same bees away from the comb several times.
#Take the inspected hive body out of the hive and put it onto the roof. The roof is usually upside down. Take care to not crush the bees under the box.
#Give the hive enough room during the active season.
