I bought my two top bar hives from Joey last year, one hive is thriving; I didn't establish the second one yet. The hive is well built and I love it. The roof has bowed somewhat d/t weather exposure, and I found an old metal table top to put over it that solved that problem. I was brand new to beekeeping, and Joey has led me every step of the way, taken calls and supported all questions, queries, and ponderings. He has a true love of the bees and only the bees interest at heart. He is a gifted teacher and a great support. He has mentored me via cell phone and internet. I called him yesterday to let him know the bees were out flying and he was genuinely happy to hear it. Top bar hives are easy to build from scrap, but I am not handy at all, and these were great. I look forward to him and his contributions to top bar hive beekeeping. His bars have wooden wedges and I did not use wax as a starter. The bees built straight comb. I have never set foot in another beehive, and I feel very comfortable with this hive. It has been a great journey, and the knotweed honey I tasted this fall was glorious. I'm looking forward to splitting the hive and taking full advantage of the abundant tulip poplar nectar flow this spring.

Could you please explain to me why this was moved? And to where?
