Langstroth hives, quilt boxes, and hive ventilation
« on: April 06, 2013, 01:21:45 AM »
For the sake of ease, I am reposting this question I had for the master bee keeper I am taking a class with... please let me know what you think.... Just so you know.... I am a newbie bee keeper, am actually still waiting on my delayed nuke (much to my disappointment), but have been doing as much reading and research as i can... Thanks in advance!!!

I have been doing a lot of reading and have come across an alternative hive, the
warre. I am quite sure you're familiar. For all the similarities and
differences, the one thing that seems to be the most intriguing is the placement
of a burlap cloth and wood shavings box. I understand that this is for moisture
control and for removal of condensation, I have even been looking into people's
experiences with adapting them to langstroth hives. Below is a link to one of
the best adaptations I have found. I was hoping you could share your thoughts
and possible experiences with me. And any other useful information about the
circulation of air within the hive.
