    Re: Top bar hive for teaching at USF

    How do the feeders work? My top bar hives do not have access to the top for the bees. I have thought of doing something to allow access but have not done so yet.

    Trapout

    We have a trap on a bee tree and I think we need some brood in the box. The trap is a good 20 minute drive away. Will the brood survive that trip? Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Paul
