    Air flow

    A few years ago, I'd run out of covers for the holes and used duct tape instead. It took them 5 months to eat their way through and make a hole big enough for one bee.

    Storing supers for winter

    Mine are stored wet on top of sealed entrance open mesh floor, crownboard above supers and roof on top. These boxes haven't been used for brood.

    Why do people use large beehives like national?

    The same principle is used in the US they're called medium boxes. The Rose hive is just another reinvention of the wheel as it were.

    How long does a bee colony last?

    Why do people use large beehives like national?

    Not in Wales, I used to have old beekeeping catalogues, not one of them had a Warre in it. You joined an association and used the hives they used, life was easier and cheaper back then.

    Why do people use large beehives like national?

    :iagree: I started in 1981, we didn't have all the fancy natural beekeeping hives that are around today. Life was simpler and I never used any treatment on my hives.

    Part of a bees life cycle IS being requeened whether it is swarming, supersedure or emergency. You say about different breeds and getting loads of honey. My mongrels outperform my Buckfasts and my main aim is for less defensive bees.

    Not the same product as Abelo. The UK would probably market it at £7 per hive.

    This is the info I've found and interestingly it should be similar design to Apivar strips but impregnated with oxalic. The US will no longer test for oxalic in honey. Will Britain follow suit, I hold my breathe!

    Have you been looking at Apis Cerana the Eastern Honeybee? These are in smaller boxes and not as prolific as the Western Honeybee.
