  1. Warre and other Compact Vertical Hives Forum
    I find that the information at www.thewarrestore.com is really detailed with respect to how Warré hives work. Also, the path to natural beekeeping...not putting things in the hive that the bees don't also bring...makes sense. The advice on the best way to manage hive pests has the incidental...
  2. Treatment-Free Beekeeping
    Hello all, as I said in my welcome post, I have been slowly researching bee keeping over the last 2 years. I've read The Complete Idiots Guide twice, and I've followed the boards here, and looked at MBush's site a few times, just ordered his book today. The one nagging question I have, which...
  3. Top Bar & Horizontal Hive Forum
    I posted this elsewhere here on BeeSource, but since top bar hives are nearest and dearest to our hearts - thought this category would be relevant too. The connection between our agriculture system and the health of honeybees is an important one! Hope you enjoy the video - please watch and...

  6. Treatment-Free Beekeeping
    I read people's beekeeping stories. I like to hear people's experiences throughout the years. One thing that pricks my ear though is how people talk of requeening. I have kept my bees without treatments of any kind for eight years. From the onset, I was intent on developing a diverse gene...
  7. Bee Forum
    I know that in the wild, bees tend to make cells of different sizes, even in the same frame, and there are some that believe that natural cell sizes seem to make it easier for bees to fend off pests like varroa mites. I also know that there are small cell foundations that are made in an attempt...

  10. Bee Forum
    I just remembered a formula for all natural weed killer, no harmful chemicals whatsoever - just two ingredients, and it is non-toxic. Take one part of white vinegar and mix it with one part of table salt. I don't think it matters but when I used this, I used salt with iodine in it. Mix...
