Musings on Beekeeping: Top Bar Hive Apiary
« on: February 26, 2015, 02:14:58 AM »
I think everybody?s beekeeping depends on their own unique situation and desires. Beekeeping takes many different forms around the world and there is no one right way. It all depends on the circumstances of the person engaged in this activity. For me it has led to the use of top bar hives, both because of them being so inexpensive but also because they work well for Africanized bees.

Here?s a glimpse of one of my top bar apiaries in Honduras. It?s a ?visit? to show how I set up my apiaries and some of the activities involved with it. It shows a bit of what I do but also why I do it my way.

That's a really nice setup, Tomas. I've enjoyed mulling through your blog. If things go well for me and it turns out I have a knack for this, I would imagine my set up to be very similar to yours, with mods for climate of course.

Thanks for taking the time to share what works for you.
