200RE: [TopHive] beginner question
- Aug 14, 2005Hi teri,
Jon replied to you about the top bar hives, and I am the top bar hiver
he talks to on that list. This list here is a non-list meaning no one
really lives here. I think some people are here, but no one talks. There
is a LOT of top bar hive talk on email@example.com and
also on beesource
I prefer organicbeekeepers, but all in all its nice to talk to a wide
variety of people.

Subject: [TopHive] beginner question
I'm new to the list. I've been directed towards top bar hives, in
response to a question on another list about working bees in your old
age (I'm in my 50s). I am planning to put in bees next spring, hopefully
3 hives to start. I have locust & maple on my place with blackberries
near by so I think I have a good spot for bees.
My questions are: would you recommend top bar hives for someone just
starting out? Is there anything in particular a newbie would need to
know about handling these hives in a damp wet area (Washington state)?
Thanks for your help!
