    Thanks, I have done some quick research on swarming and it seems like a good option to just let them swarm. So long as the existing hives can continue to be then I’m happy.

    I am not too fussed if...

    I would first ask the OP what they want to get out of beekeeping - if honey yield is their number one priority then perhaps Warre is not the way to go. In my case, I have 4 hives (1 Langstroth and 3...

    Re: First Warre hive - slightly modified

    Thanks - your answer makes perfect sense. JHB has a fantastic moderate climate - even in winter. I would say 80% of the year the min/max is between 50 and 70F in a sheltered part of the garden. It...

    Re: First Warre hive - slightly modified
