View Full Version : Top Bar Hive Presentation Ideas

10-03-2006, 04:49 PM
I am in the process of constructing a TBH presentation/demonstration. I have read where some of you have given presentations at bee keeping clubs in the past and was wondering is you had some materials you would be willing to share. Any Powerpoint material would be greatly appreciated! I would like to construct a portable screen house in which I can show an active hive and show how to manipulate a TBH. Does anyone have any experience here? Thanks in advance.

Heritage: here is a tip. Go into Google and click on advanced search. Where it says file format, click on ppt (powerpoint presentation). Put in some key words such as beekeeping and then see what you get. I got this one site (url) for beginning beekeeping:

It's a combination of foundationless, long hives, top bar hives etc.

And this:

If you use any of this, I'd appreciate getting credited for it.

Thanks all. Mr. Bush, I cannot seem to open your Power Point Presentation. Is that on my end or yours? I haven't had trouble opening other presentations. I'm using PPT 2000. Thanks.

I just tried it myself and I'm having trouble too. I'm not sure what the problem is. I can email it to you if you like. PM me if you want me to.

I was able to view it just fine, and the pics were better than the ones on the web site for some reason. Very nice.

BTW if you ever find that power point, or word, or excel or the like are giving you problems, (and they will), forget them all with Open Office.

You can still use the old software if you want to, but you won't. It can read and write files from and for the original software. It's just less buggy, and free.
