    Default The Fridge Long Lang

    Not sure this was ever posted here but I just found this aussie guy's youtube channel... and he made a hive in a fridge. He calls it a "top bar" fridge hive but he means long lang. He also refers to Langstroth as "Langsworth" at times. It's cringeworthy, and funny, and bewildering. It is also crude.

    It's in five 20 min parts and another where he transfers bees in the hive.

    I can easily find tens of videos of fridge hives.
    Must be hundreds of cases not video-documented.
    They are a pretty common thing.

    A fridge is a perfect house for a hive no issues there Greg. It's the way he went about it I found interesting.

    The guy is a good show man. Sure thing!
    I really like this kinds of cheap reality TV on Youtube anymore and this is what I watch.
    Screw those staged, money shoveling TV personalities of the regular TV.

    Love the style, measure, cut and if it don't fit we'll make it work some other way.
