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?

Great News !!!

I just recieved an email from my top bar beekeeper friend up north in Sweden that one of my two top bar hives is alive and has enough stores. Patrick could not look into the other hive because it is too cold outside. The one he inspected has a large window on the side of the hive were he could clearly see bees between the comb :) SOOOOOO HAPPPPPYYYY! but the winter is still not over so lets make sure they come out of April alive before celebrating.
The bees are clearly visible behind the widnow glass :)

This hive was inspected and my friend is totally not impressed with the Periscope Entrance. Why? The bees clogged the entrance with dead bees completely! He removed the mouse guard and scraped out all the dead ones. This must be the reason for the bees pooing inside the hive (in the photo above one can see brownish spots stuff on the window glass). I hope all this poo is not going to polute the hive.
This is the hive that wasnt inspected. Lets hope they are doing well!

Another great news is that my friend Patrick will teach Top Bar Beekeeping at Kretsloppshuset this year :) This is the course in Self-sufficinet Householding which I took last year. This is realy fantastic news because more people will be able to learn about it :) Well done Patrick my friend!
