my names is jay, Im totaly NOOB to beekeeping.
I did my first cut out yesterday. I'm praying that they all will stay.
what type of TBH do you have? are all tbh the same style???
Did you build it?
I built 2 with some scrap lumber left from a remodel demo...
all n all i spent about 3 1/2 hrs start to finish.
the next ones i think.. will have a mid or two to go on top of the original stand.
Officialy only 2 that I know , unofficialy it's up to your imanigation .Anny hollow with bars on top is a TBH .
building three types of hives for this coming Spring. Warre Vertical TBH, Kenyan horizontal TBH, and a Langstroth hive body using top bars and/or foundation-less frames.
I bought an established TBH this summer from a beek who built it himself from plans purchased online. It has arched top bars that result in an elongated hexagon shaped comb about 18" long. I have not seen another arched top bar hive. Does anyone else have an arched top bar hive? I have several photos in my public photo album titled "Arched Top Bar Hive".
(I'm still trying to find the manage attachments button mentioned in the FAQs to post my pics.)
I am looking for a good top bar hive design. I have wood but need a plan. Ideas?
