Do you prefer traditional or top bar hives? Is one better to prevent CCD than the other?

Hi Nicholas --

It's ALL about the WAX. I don't care which box you use - provided you don't use foundation. There is probably no "one" cause for CCD - because everything is so connected, it could be said that everything (especially everything agriculture-related) is tied together and could be a cause for CCD. If we try to do things just a little bit less wrong as we go forward, and then a little bit less wrong than that, I think that eventually we can get close to setting things to rights again.

What do you think?


-- Christy
