Re: Use TBH or not?
I've tried all kinds of hives, If you like the none lifting type, I preferred the lang long, I think it was about 4 ft long, holds regular frames, I went with starter stips. It is very handy for grafting , the frames interchange with lang hives and you have no supers to lift. The down side, is when trying to remove some honey, the honey is very often above the brood. So you would have to cut off the brood to get any honey.. The kenya hive was fun, had a window in it, but the frames don't fit anything else. I would suggest start with a lang hive, get time in and expand. If you need to start flat, go with a lang long 33 frame and you have the option to move frames..
Either choice, its fun..
