Greetings. I've just returned from 2.5 years in Africa where I had just started a 14 hive apiary with those ever so friendly African bees. Three hives were colonized when I left. But that's as far as I got. Now I want to set up a couple 'more beekeeper friendly' hives here in my flower abundant back yard. I was thinking of doing the Langstroth version. I used the Kenyan top bar system in Ghana.
I am very happy to have found this site and support community.
