    Default beekeeper beginner from Slovenia

    Hy... i want to share with you our beekeeping, that is quite diffrent than in other countries. We use our own AŽ hives, and keep them in so called beehouses.

    This is traditional beehouse:



    So you have your hives protected from weather conditions, you work from inside, keep all your tools in... so its much less work.

    I am starting to build my own beehouse:





    And our hive (we are using also top bar hive):



    I will post some new pictures soon, if you have any questions just ask

    No problem. You can show photos to anyone

    Wood tray is a varoa tester, but it separate from az hive. newer hives already have this tester in bottom. so its included and not separate.

    Welcome to the forum, and thanks for sharing the photos!

    I just saw a NOVA documentary called "Tales From the Hive" that showed a beehouse that I think was in a German orchard. Same kind of thing where all the hives opened from the back into the honey house. Pretty cool concept.

    Yes, this is very cool. Post more pictures. I remember reading & seeing pictures of something like this being done in some areas of the US around 100 years ago.

    When you work them from inside & bees get out into the room, is there an issue with them getting back into the hive?

    Hello Bostek, please send me a private message regarding your bee house. I would like to send you my email address. Thanks, I would like to keep in touch with you because I do not know any Slovenian beekeepers.

    Do you think about using solar cells on the roof? Is the solar power concept popular among beekeepers in your country?
