Man, they need to reprint that book! How cool!!! I like at the beginning, how it says the best way to get the bees out of the hive is by killing them! lol Sounds expensive!!! lol It's amazing that this was 250 years BEFORE the Langstroth hive, and the Langstroth hive is over 100 years old! Man how the times have changed. Could you imagine the look on the author Charles Butler's face if he could have seen our new foam insulated hive bodys with internal syrup feeders?!?! Cool ancient writings! Thanks!
