    Default Hybrid Warre/TBH pics

    Here is a link to an experimental hive I just built, sort of a hippie Bee Condo.

    I will let ya'll know how the bees like it this summer. I call it "son of hivemonster" as it is the second iteration, the first was a four foot long KTBH beast that I deemed too large for my urban backyard.

    cheers

    Nice pics. I have something similar in the works. Mine is 3 mediums wide. I will be using spaced top bars throughout so that I can super or use frames if necessary.

    Beautiful. It reminds me of an old Dutch barn.
    So many weeds.......so little time.

    Cool!
    What are the slats? I assume they are thinned bars so that the bees can go upstairs. I assume they are thinned to keep the same distance, aprox. 1 3/8 on center (from the center of one to the center of the next.) Is that right?

    Hi Katydid,

    What a beautiful hive. I know you've had a lot of fun designing and building this one.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I once wrangled bees. But now, knowing better, I just let them bee.

    That is one of the coolest boxes I have ever seen. Is the bottom screen all the way, or solid or what?
