Just saying "Hey" from Georgia.
« on: September 02, 2013, 12:30:13 AM »
My twin brother and I started keeping bees in May of 2012. We got just ONE Lang. "for pollination" and this year we really caught the fever. Now we have five hives:  three Langs and two Top-bar hives designed after Michael Bush's simple plans. We are currently working on swapping all our Langs to just 10-frame medium bodies. We are building everything nowdays and will probably up the production when there's nothing to do in the winter time!

Ok.. the first one is of the very first Bush Top-Bar that we built.



This second one is of one of our Langs that we put at the edge of a soy field (yes, I have heard of the evils of monocrops). We are currently working on swapping all our Langs to just 10-frame medium bodies. We are building everything nowdays and will probably up the production when there's nothing to do in the winter time!
