The principles of small cell beekeeping are, for me at least, easy to understand and perform. I find it funny how the more complex minds have difficulty understanding the simplicity of beekeeping as it was done long ago. The beekeeping industry surely has made a hard and difficult job of beekeeping today and most beekeepers seem to not want to do anything but make it even harder, not so with us who look at traditional methods and keep it simple.
Michael, I know for a fact that you simply keep bees and do a really good job of it. You do it without the treatments that others use and some of them say you got it wrong. Some folks know so much they can not be helped. I have never used an observation hive but with what you present as an experiment I just might have to build one to have some fun so I too can see what you have seen so I can with first hand experience tell more of what Small Cell Beekeeping has to offer in benefits.
Glad you posted, thanks.
