I'm new to bee keeping, I just started my researching a few weeks ago and I still have so much to learn. I'm hoping to get bees this spring. I live in Michigan.
I am very interested in the Top Bar bee hive from the things I have read so far about it, I was wondering if anyone on here knows of any good websites or books on Top Bar bee hives that I might be able to read?
One reason I really like the idea of the top bar bee hive is that it's not as heavy as the other hives, about how heavy do you think a bar with comb and honey on it weights?
Do you think a Top Bar hive would be a good start for some one who has never ever had bees before? One thing I'm afraid of with the Top Bar hive, is that no one in my area will know anything about the hive, so I wont be able to get one on one personal help if I ever need it, what do you think about that?
Thank you so much.
