Hence I originally started pursuing Layen's style beehives and the beekeeping ways.
Like this - set it and forget it:
Yes - people will tell many things for and against.
I will argue "set it and forget it" has its legit place in the ecosystem.
All way around hardy bee is highly desirable for this to work (which kind of what sucked me into this project).
The hardy bee is pretty much a requirement.
Otherwise, I have video documentation of exactly this method of beekeeping - set it and forget it.
