      Bees sometimes even harvest the pitch. Often hive up in oak trees. . They like fruit tree pollen so fruit tree wood would probably be like. My thinking anyway.

      Good morning folks,
      I have a question about the top bars. I made mine out of 3/4' pine and have found some that have warped. What is the best wood to make the bars from?

      I live in NC Arkansas where the temp might get down to 0 F a couple of times during the winter. Most of the time is is in the 30's or 40's. How many combs will the bees need to make it until spring?

      I am so impressed with the TBH that I sold all my langs this week and will be building three more TBH's this winter.

      Thanks, Robbie
