  • 2 queen excluders
  • 2 bee escape boards
  • 1 top entrance shim
  • 30 shallow Pierco frames
  • 2 shallow boxes
  • 1 crush and drain bucket
  • 1 migratory cover
Things to construct (without Monta's help this will be impossible.):

  • 2 top bar hives
  • 1 Warre hive
  • 1 follower board to replace the one broke in Metpropolis.
