My wife and i started removing the trees i cut down the other day. As mentioned earlier I will establish my apiary here in front of the white shed. I have built 3 hives based on top bar beekeeping. I will be buying 2 families of Elgon Bees bred by the known Swedish beekeeper Erik Österlund. He told me his bees have regressed to the 4.9mm cell size several years ago. This is good news. I am willing to start keeping bees which are able to fight Varroa on their own. Small Cell is not bullet proof but helps alot. It takes several years to get bees regress from the conventional 5.4mm cell size. I dont think i am willing to wait that long hence buying Elgon Bees from Erik.
By the way, my dog friend Bailey also helped ... digging a hole ;)
