    Read the forum on the Warre hive. You may want to get started on a lift for it. Good luck, and stick with it!

    Please stick with us here on Beesource, we'd love to hear about how things go over there in Saudi Arabia!

    Do you know what subspecies of bees you are using? What range of temperatures does your area experience throughout the year?

    Two more suggestions - Find an experienced beekeeper in your area for a mentor, and read all you can about it. These should help speed up the learning curve, and put more honey in your jar sooner.

    Wow!
    That is usually a complaint from western Oregon or Washington state, not Saudi Arabia! The impression that many people over here have is that it rains very little where you are. Is it common to have rain for a week?

    Hi kilocharlie, First of all thanks for your support and advice

    I have been reading about beekeeping all over the internet. And I found the majority of the beekeepers in my aria are traditional beekeepers and

    there technique are too old to be practical in these days , so I want to do something different, practical, and resourceful.

    when I got my bees , they were to few to be in a Langstroth hive so I ended up with a modified Warre hive.(I will write about that later)

    Most of the bees in my aria Apis mellifera jemenitica (you could Google that)

    I think over the course of a year, the temperature typically varies from 8C to 30C and is rarely below 5C or above 32C.

    I live in South West of Saudi Arabia (Abha) here is some photos of my aria

    I live in Abha and it is the raining season these days , you could either ask them about Abha or simply you could ask uncle Google
