Ok, my first post on this website/forum as I've been keeping up with other Warre information, etc. on Biobees.com and the Yahoo group dedicated to Warre's. Biobees.com forum dedicated to Warre's is loaded with information, easier to navigate than the Yahoo group, IMO. I'm running two Warre's here in Houston since May last year when I hived a package into my first Warre. Second Warre was started with a swarm caught at work (I work at an airport).
@WBVC---inspection can be more difficult with a Warre. If the inspector were to insist on seeing the entire comb, you'd have to first cut the comb loose from the sidewall of the box. A knife is made for this, but I'd have to do some looking to find the web link. Basically a sharp blade attached to a long, skinny rod that you send down between the combs, turn 90deg and pull upwards to cut the side comb loose from the box wall. Then lift out the comb via the top bar as though it were coming out of a TBH.
@endurider---Sometimes when separating boxes you do have to pass a wire btwn boxes if the comb has been built down to the top bars of the box below. Other times once the box has been loosened from the one below, a twist of the box being removed will break the comb free.
@suzyq---a hive lift makes it so much easier to deal with a heavy hive when nadiring boxes. I'll see if I can find a link from David Heaf's website where he describes thier use and has a link to various examples. Google might help too. I gotta go as I have an airplane inbound that needs my attention.
