Could members post pics of hive types/frames so that any new beekeeper's can see what is possible before making a purchase.

Maybe a short description plus the pos and neg points of the hive..

TOP BAR HIVE


Easy and cheap to build, no foundation needed, much favoured by "natural" beekeepers


WARRE HIVE


Aesthetically pleasing, relatively easy and cheap to build, and allows the bees the luxury of "nestduftwarmebindung" (the maintenance of essential nest heat and atmosphere) - very much "hands off" management

-will expand on this later............

as promised - here's a shot into the top-bar hive some 17 days after the swarm was introduced - all their own work!




and here's a shot of one of the combs at 17 days

Any one got any pics to post of the poly 3 in 1 nuc sold by Park beekeeping ?
It would be interesting to see a proper break down instead of the thumb nail views beloved of supply web sites :)

The way I upload pictures is to put them on www.flickr.com and then you can paste the URL of the pictures into your Forum entry, using the button with a picture of a mountain on it. It is a bit of a fiddle finding the URL in Flickr and I have to re-learn how to do it almost every time. The Help on Flickr isn't much good. You will need to open an account with Flickr but it is free. I can talk you through it if you open account first.

There is a way of uploading picturess to an album on the Forum but it didn't work for me the last time I tried - said there was a missing token or something so I went back to Flickr. There are alternatives to Flickr but it is the one I've learned to use.
