    Default Beekeeping in Poland

    I have a friend that returned from a visit to Poland a few weeks back. She took these images of local beehives being transported. I've never seen hives like this before.



    Regards, Barry

    People in those countries even use motorcycles to transport hives. Two at a time...

    I actually like the design of the trailer. It would make transporting hives very easy, as you don't need to take them off the trailer. Pull up, drop off the trailer, level it, and be gone. Just walk down the middle of the trailer to do maintenance.

    Those must be some deep frames.....

    A little off topic; I was looking at some old bee magazines, and in the June 2009 ABJ "Classroom" section, Jerry Hayes says, "Poland has a great system of providing all beekeepers in the country with artificially inseminated queens, so that genetic traits can be controlled and diversity maintained."

    I wonder how many beekeepers there are in Poland...
