It is a piece of some culture. But very unpractical in honey production. You cannot move bees according blooming.

This is nice when you move bees from pasture to pasture.

Here’s a photo (in google book) of the building they used to house bees in at the Jackson State Prison (Jackson, Michigan)

I think Pearce is on to something. Think hives are still to small. I guess Perone is this generations Pearce.

Open the door and the light comes on.   Easier to see during hive inspections.   grin

I have been in a beehouse. It is awfull place.

- Dark. How can you see anything.

- Smoke. You kill yourself inside when you smoke bees.

- Nowadays hives are 3 times bigger than in those colden days 50 y ago when they had houses in my country.

Door open does not help

 You've never been in a b house built by me Smiley I think it would be awesome !
-Cute little windows with flowers in boxes and white lace curtains. Maybe even skylight. I'll have lights to.
-I use smoke rarely and sparingly. Maybe a bathroom exhaust fan ? Maybe a bathroom ?
-We like big houses in USA  Smiley
-Thinking surround sound system, sat tv, internet, heck I might just move in there w/ 'em ! Smiley

Isn't that why Brother Adam decided to use bigger frames and bigger hives?

The East Europe has allways used big frames. What Brother Adam did, was like miracles of Bibble.

Brother Adam wrote: During very severe winters when  temperature is near freezing point".
He kept bees on southern pensinsula where bee get pollen in January.

Many in Finland use only medium langstroth frames and instead of douple they use 3 mediums.

Frame from London UK this 2012

Surely difficult to handle.

Are you going to have to start calling him Saint Adam?

Frame from Michigan 2012.  Not difficult to handle  Smiley 



Simpler to deal with 10 or 11 of these than shuffle through 3 boxes of 30 medium frames and angry bees.  When the jumbo frames are mostly brood, they are light and easier to deal with.

A langstroth frame full of honey is heavy enough to handle. Not one but 100.

No sense to have all kind of boxes and frames, at least when you want to get honey.

World is full all kind of beekeeping solutions. Miracles, not mearly surprises.

To make 1:1 syrup is biggest miracle and second is that bees can make combs without human.

I am quite angry when I have forgotten to put all frames into the hive and they have done their natural comb, or some frame is medium in langstroth box. It is a miracle how that has happened?

That is a pretty frame Blue. I am currently working on prototype extra-extra-extra deep frame, 3' tall. Have decided next years hives will not be divided vertically.
