I have blogged recently about me helping Marco build a new Kenya Top Bar Hive which will be placed in the University of Agriculture Alnarp. This was a good opportunity for him to see how chop'n'crop is being performed before he acquires his bees in May. Chop'n'Crop is a way to fit framed wax comb into the top bar hive with sloped V-shaped walls.
The bees were not aggressive at all :) we chopped'n'cropped 12 framed combs without even one bee being agitated. We must be very good at this or these bees are very gentle ;) It must be the second ;)
