And that's another thing Robo, in this day and age, you should be checking your bees. Mr. Warre lived in another time.
I'm not sure of that, sometimes I think we are doing more harm than good. I see a lot of feral colonies thriving with no intervention by man.
I just know that I am going for 100 hives as a goal, and I can't see me doing that with Warre hives.
I hear ya.
Besides the fact that I can't stay out of them every two weeks or so. That's asking too much!
Addicting isn't it
I'm sure when you got into beekeeping, a goal of 100 hives was not on your mind
Best of luck and hope you succeed.
