    HI Bostek:

    I just ordered an AZ hive from Logar in SLovenia. It is expected to arrive in a couple of weeks. I would be very interested in staying in touch with you in case I have any questions setting it up. My email is igep21@gmail.com. I would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions. Mine will be out in the open for now, I will also have some Langstroth hives near it.

    Hi Bostek:

    I would like some advice. I tried to email you but the message was returned
    I have an AZ hive on order but haven't the slightest idea of how to house it or how to manage it. I would really appreciate and suggestions and pictures if possible. I may need to wait until next year to set it up. Please contact me

    Hi again:

    I just watched your video checking the beehives. What is the board that you used for support? Is that the sipalnik or wood strewer? Is that also used for installing the bees or is there a better method? With Lang hives I take out about 4-5 frames and lay the box right in and let them walk out. Could that be done with the AZ hive?? Thanks

    If I understood you correctly, you are located in Slovenia and would like to aquire a beehive and bees? If that's the case you can check the following link or ask around, I'll bet that you'll find what your looking for fast. Remember Slovenia has the most bee keepers per capita ... Cheers

    Michael,

    The frames are supported by the metal rod, and they have a spacer on the wall that they can engage. Think of it like sliding out a book from a rack. Many people make their own wooden ware and the metal components are readily available. If your interested let me know and I'll take some pics for you.

    I have one Pislak queen, will see her performance this spring. Also know some other beeks that are satisfied with them, will see their results this season also. Also I know they are sold wide in Europe.

    It is great to have folks on the list that are using AZ hives in the bee house style.

    Could you post more details on how these hives are constructed and managed?
    How do you super them for honey production when the vertical space appears to be limited (fixed)?
    Doesn't the bee house get filled with stray bees that can't make it back to their hive after an inspection?
    Very interesting way to manage bees.

    I don't work with AŽ, but I saw this video and a pics, which I think will show you what you asked for. My mentor has some AŽ grom.

    Thanks. Very interesting. The powered bee brush was something else... not sure what to think of it.

    My mentor has one, I worked with it, fast going through supers, don't bring the bees along.. More and more is used here ( let's say - popular). It runs on car battery.

    Interesting thread, thanks a million for reviving it. Curiosity got me and did some Googling for images and the artwork on some Slovenian hives is astounding.

    Tell the truth, it's easier to remember.

    Now I see why they invented bee houses. To protect their paintings!

    I'd love to know more about how the frames slide in and out of the hives. What keeps them hanging in the hives..
