Is there any way to reduce the plastic in the hive.
Are you actually Oscar Perone who is the inventor of Permapiculture?

I merged your two threads together and deleted the duplicate post. On permies we have the spiffy feature of having one thread show up in multiple forums. THis thread is now in both Pollinators and Honey Bees forums.
If you ever need a thread to show up in more than one forum, just click the button on the first post and tell us which forums you'd like it added to.
Is there any way you could enable translation on your video? Not all of us speak Spanish....

Un gran gusto leerlo en Permies, saludos desde Colombia.
¿Podría porfavor explicar con más detalle como es el mecanismo de cosecha automática?
¿Por que la divisón de la colmena puede afectar a las meliponas?
Hi Mr Perone
Im glad to read you at Permies. Hi from Colombia!
Can you please explaian with more detail how the automatic harvest system works?
Why the division of the hive is bad to the bees?
Thank you so much!

First, is this little hive a "rational hive" that permits easy splitting of an existing hive? Second, can these stingless bees be kept beyond the 30th parallel? Or are they strictly a tropical species?
Jay Angler wrote:Hi Mr Oscar Perone,
I'd like to clarify a few of points:
1. What you have said, is that you do *not* divide the hive, but rather you wait for the bees themselves to decide to swarm and then make sure there are more of your tiny homes empty in the area in the hopes that the bees will decide to move in?
2. If you do have a hive of bees, do you ever move it? Moving established hives is a big problem that is stressing the bees in North America. That said, if you feel the bees you are working with are endangered, do you feel that occasionally moving a young hive in an effort to re-establish the bees in an area being rehabilitated can be done successfully?
3. Do the bees put *all* their honey in the acetate containers, or do they keep some in the nest area? How can someone be sure they do not remove too many of the containers for the health of the colony?
Thank you for doing the work to preserve pollinators. I do not live within the territory for the bees you have designed for, but there are native bees in my areas, and ensuring that they have areas suitable for nesting is important. I don't know if we have any that would appreciate your nest, but it's still interesting to learn about.

I agree with you, and I share your wish.
Jerry Ward wrote:I've been aware of your work for sometime now and it fits the style of beekeeping I would like to practice, leave the hive alone and harvest some honey once a year.
Jerry Ward wrote:I however live too far north for the bees you are talking about. Are there any changes recommended for the honey bees we have here in America?
Kelsey Bileen wrote:This is beautiful!
Please post plans when you have created dimensions for North American honey bees!
A couple questions...
