Natural Beekeeping

Top Bar ApiRevolution has begun! Lets make some inexpensive Top Bar Hives and let them be pesticide free on their own natural comb! Che Guebee is a rebel bee fighting for the survival of the Biodiversity we all depend on and which is seriously endangered by deforestation and mono-crop agriculture! What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

Joining hives with Dowels instead of Screws and Nails

I will stop with using un-sustainable materials for making top bar hives. I will stop making mesh floors totally.  Reused and Recycled screws and nails are just fine but under no circumstances am I to buy new ones :)
Instead I will learn hot to join hive planks with wooden dowels and wood glue. I have lined up to make a few top bar hives for my Apiary this winter and I see no reason for not joining them with wooden dowels.
Stay tuned ;)
This set costs under 3 Euro in Sweden. Note the 4 dowel centers to mark the exact position of the previously drilled holes onto the other one, NICE ;) I think I have a hand drill too, happy days!
