    Just wondering, but it looks like this would bee perfect for a warre system.
    I am building a fieldstone garden shed, it would be easy to add a second floor and make it into a bee house, the bear issue would be solved a bit better then worrying about my electric fence.
    Does anyone have pictures of the inside, or better yet how a warre system would work in it.
    I am picturing in my head, that you wouldnt need the roof on the warre, and you would work it like normal, adding boxes under, you would just need a stationary floor.
    By any accounts they are awesome pictures and a great idea.

    What a lovely Thread.
    I had the opportunity to visit Tone Fabjan in Sec many years ago and he took me to visit a queen breeder. The Slovenians are doing their beekeeping in stile. When I was there we had lunch near the beehouse and without warning a number of swarms took of. An experince I will never forget.
    Keep the photos coming - thanks!

    Bostek,

    Thank you for sharing. Those are the coolest bee houses I have yet come across. I am planning one for a winter project. Was wondering what is the width of those frames ?

    Cheers,
    Drew

    bostek,
    Thank you very much for sharing so much with us on a hive we are not familiar with in the USA.
    I do have a question regarding the wood tray you put in the bottom of the hive in your video. What is its purpose? I am also subscribed to your YouTube site. Was the skiing movie taken this year?
    Thanks in advance.

    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.

    skiing movie is old. we got some snow today:

    Help to reach my dreams

    At the moment i can't afford to expand my beekeeping, so i decided to find some sponsors, that would help to to accomplish my ideas.
    Main idea is to start free, innovative biodynamic beekeeping tourism, that would involve safe bee observation (especially for kids), education, promotion and charity.
    I am also developing some less known bee products, "adopt" bee colony project, help misfortune kids, educate about bees, promoting biodynamical way of beekeeping and much more.

    You can learn more about my ideas here:
    http://igg.me/p/299505/x/1951963

    Any donations are greatly helpful, you can choose perks (so you get something in return) or just donate amount that you can. You can pay by paypal(and login with facebook).

    Thank you

    I have added project to crowdfunding site indiegogo:
    http://www.indiegogo.com/beekeeping-...1951963?c=home

    And everyone that contributes, gets something - look and available perks on the right side of indeogogo site

    IMAG1901.jpg

    So here are some main points:

    * modification of bee shed with our slovenian Aˇ hives (with hive endings) - capable to observe beekeeper behind safety glass or net
    * middle ages section - practical beekeeping in hollow tree, skeps, and first home made hives
    * LR hives section - modern hives
    * beekeeping around the world - some traditional and current hives from around the world
    * observation hives - i am developing inovative safe observation hives for smaller kids, that are lower positioned, so children can watch from the ground, and there is smaller chance to get stung. Appropriate from 1 year old and above. For example you can see my 1.5 year old daughter.
    * evolving some rare and not so known bee products
    * free tour, lecture, products tasting, learning about our carniolan bee and her current problems, diffrences between biodynamical and modern beekeeping
    * give a chance to misfortune kids to start beekeeping without starting cotst
    * photos in beekeeping suit (adult and children)
    * adopt bee colony project (individuals and companies) can "adopt" colony and monitor its progress and get their products, visit pure nature
    * donating 200 candles and 50kg of honey

    So i have lots of ideas, more still waiting... so will be trying to complete as much as i can this year.

    Skep waiting to get usefull

    2) Is that a spacer across the back wall (from the point of view of the door)
    Yes to both, I have these hives and can take some more photos of them if you like. These hives are also double walled, ie insulated and have several other very nice features.

    Mariner,

    I too find these AZ hives fascinating. I have seen the websites with pictures of plans. But, dimensions and all the details are still not clear to me. I'd like to eventually build one for my backyard. They look like a combination of a full-sized hive and an observation hive.

    some of these images don't seem to open but the links mostly do and have great pics, thanks. I like the rain/snow melt water recovery system, simple and elegant and keeps the bees well watered.
