    It certainly doesn't - it just need talent to work with it and to keep it alive in practical usage. I got a cheap one and the cable broke all the times (I throw the thing into my truck, and it kept...

    You're paying for a tool that works compared to a self-build source of annoyance. Guess how I know. ;)
  6. Re: Gear for melting out honey directly from frames

    I also wonder how that project went. (As well as how many of those survivor bees actually survived the winter. Before winter it was 75 hives, no?)

    The use of top entrances and the use of multiple entrance - each hive body has an entrance - only has disadvantages.

    I have not the slightest clue what you are saying? :scratch:

    Yes, as said because of the frames. In his late work he propagated the smaller hives without frames. His book has had 12 editions in total. In the 5th edition (1923) frames were described, but not...

    No. Certainly not.

    That is an modern interpretation of the bee hippies (how I call them, with a friendly wink) but has nothing to do with Émile Warré's intentions. Read the book. There is small...
