To understand why different beekeepers keep there bees in different ways it is important to take into consideration the different climate variables.
mvh edward :-P
Even here beekeepers nurse their bees with 10 methods and they are ready to kill others which have different opinion.
For example mesh floor is "modern" and solid bottom is "old age". In ventilation we get a big bebate as we want.
However, bees stand many kind of giants of intelligens.
But if I read every day that countries are different, I cannot stand that intelligens.
That should be clear before he opens internet.
And good yields? It depends on pastures where you put your hives.
If you do not want to extract honey, it is same how you nurse bees. If hive dies, you get a swarm from somewhere.
Love bees, that is nonsense. - Get a life.
