103Re: [TopHive] RESEND (Varroa control in top bar hives)
- Sep 10, 2003Leonard,
In a recent posting you mentioned, "I observed an average of one varroa
per drone brood - some none, some three
or four - said to be a heavy infestation. Drone excision controled this
What is this and what do you do? I plane to build a top bar hive this
winter and try it for the first time next spring ...
You mentioned that, "My latest hive design (a 30 degree vented Kenyan,
similar to CK5) uses wood
board construction in an attempt to use materials easily obtained
commercialy in the U.S.A. The material cost for a complete hive body with
legs and bars should be less than $35.00, plus whatever is spent on a
roof. I will be publishing this in a few months.'
I will be interested when it comes out.
