    Default Hello from OR!

    I have enjoyed lurking around this site and adding knowledge to my two years of study. I installed my first package into a top bar this spring. It has kept me busier than I imagined = less sleep!

    I hear you, I installed a package last spring in a Top Bar, my belief was that it was a much "simpler" way of keeping bees, not sure that this was correct. It seemed pretty time consuming esp. in the beginning. The best thing you can do for yourself with a top bar is stop any cross combing immediately. I cannot stress this enough, if you don't you will have a mess on your hands and will be unable to harvest honey or move the bars as necessary. I bought 4 more packages this year and plan to install in Langs, now I will be able to see for certain which is better, at least for me.
