Product Description
This book examines the issues surrounding modern day beekeeping practices and advances a case for the use of natural comb hives to allow the bees species-specific behaviours to be expressed. The author suggests the top-bar hive of Emile Warre as a practical and economical alternative to frame hives and describes the bee-friendly features of its operation. The book includes construction plans and modern tips for its management.
