Hi, Sasha, Nice to hear from you!!!!! Would you tell us more about your TBH?
And, where in Serbia do you live?
I live in Grenada , in the Caribbean and utilize old fridges, air conditioning
casings and old steel drums cut in half lengthwise to make my TBHs.
Hi there on the sunny Caribbean seas,there is a heaven for bees i presume.
Shortly my tbh are made from wood like ordinary langstrot hives but with
appropriate dimensions for a tbh(according to the author of the "mother" of
all tbh web sites James D. Satterfield site).I cant remember the exactly
dimensions of my tbh since I have worked on them last winter and I am a
little bad in remembering numbers,but the dimmensions are about 80cm x 40cm x
I have jumped in the world of tbh because I like the idea,I have a bit of
simplistic taste and was very excited with the idea.I am a very young
beekeeper with very little practical experience with bees,and I also tend to
think in line of organic beekeeping,if that is posible these days.That is a
big problem here because of the varroa mite.Beekeepers here are slowly
changing into anti insect chemical warfare experts.That is not compatible
with my views.I guess you work with africanised honey bee?
I like your approach with using old items for hives / hives are only cavities
for bees/ bees can also survive without any hive especially in your region.
How many hives do you have ,are you a pro or a hobbyst?
I live in a small town Sombor,that is close to hungarian and croatian border
about 20 km in each direction.I guess you didnt think i live in Siberia in
Russia.It is Serbia like Kosovo,Bosnia etc.
All I know about Grenada is that you have experienced something similar in
terms of war.
What do you think about tbh,are you satisfied with them?
