    Hello Bee World! I am Elated to no longer be a wannabee, but have a bee two or three or 400. There's got to be poetry in there somewhere, or perhaps a country-western song or at least some rap lyrics I built a top bar hive out of an old cedar fence my neighbor tore down; ripped the top bars...

  10. Warre and other Compact Vertical Hives Forum
    I'm new to beekeeping and have been looking into hive designs. I liked the concept of the Warre Hive, but was put off by some of the drawbacks. Namely, difficult hive inspection and reports of comb of one box getting connected to the top bar of the box below it. Also, I live in Arizona, and...
