Yep ... that was my original and non-whimsical post ....I think in between the banter the message was quite plain - don't touch a beehaus with a barge pole.
I did some investigation into the Beehaus as I saw it in use at a country show. In the end I went for National but now wish I had gone Langstroth!I have been working two beehauses for the last two years with ups and downs along the way. I am just processing our current honey crop..please pm me if you would like some unbiased warts and all advice based on our experiences.
I've never seen a beehaus, so I don't know if they have to be used with the provided stand, or if can the main box can be stood on some horizontal timbers bringing the top to the right height for the individual beekeeper.To work the beehaus you need to be strong in the arms and back and at least 5'5 tall. ..... The stand is not variable like a national, and the roof is rather long for me to get to grips with.
