Re: People, a top bar hive?
First of all, not everyone has the same goals or intentions. Not everyone is out to be a record honey producer. For some, honey production is secondary, if not further down the interest chain.
There is no rule or law stating that to be a beekeeper you must do everything the same way as everyone else.
I haven't figured out yet if you're just here to stir the pot or really have such closed thinking.
As has been suggested above, some would say there are several benefits top bar hives offer over Langs. Again, depending on their expectations.
Have fun using your langs, Hope you have a good year.
No, I am NOT a bee "Keeper". Anything I post is just my opinion. Take it easy and think for yourself.
