Warre' and Natural Beekeeping Quickstart
I've come across a great, concise, beautifully illustrated guide for building and running Warre' vertical top bar hives. The photos are a great construction guide all by themselves.
It's a free pdf. But will require following a few links, having a valid email address and replying to a confirmation before downloading. Check it out Nick Hampshire's site at:
I haven't had time to download it yet (dial up). Another suggestion would be Beekeeping For All by Abbe Warre. After reading this I found that what he had to say made a lot of sense. Hope to have an active hive this year.
I'm reading more and more from this site and am impressed with this concept. I'm a newbie, so before spending any more on conventional equipment I think my husband will have to make a few of these for me.
Due to time constraints, have him make whatever is quicker to make, either TBH or Warre' as the season is passing. Good luck.
