Thanks, I followed these plans. My first carpentry (((￣へ￣井) http://biobees.com/build-a-beehive-free-plans.php
then I did a course in natural beekeeping, which was warre focussed. Totally look into the warre design too! http://www.warre.biobees.com/?mc_cid=f3c7cf2889&mc_eid=f8b4f169df
It is maybe better in its bio mimicry because it has a vertical design, like a hollow tree.
I just can't believe how dumb and egotistical people are using neonicotinoids and practicing monoculture! combined with the bees sensitivity to emf, because they use magnetoreception to navigate, it makes them vulnerable to all sorts of bacteria and pests.
The pic at the bottom is a swarm cell, so I have a young queen who would have mated in the local Drone Congregation Area,
for wild genetic diversity!
