I just wanted to pop on here and give a little info on what we will be doing at the Jamboree in the Bee Track.
We will be building a horizontal log hive, that has top bars, so basically a top bar hive that has super thick walls.
We will also build a vertical log hive, but one that is divided into 3 or 4 shorter sections so that it can be easily inspected and manipulated. We will do either top bars or bamboo skewers for the combs to be drawn from in this hive.
I would like to build a couple of Comfort hives (the modern lay person's Warre hive) and maybe a Langstroth hive as well. And last but not least we will build at least one swarm trap (not warm trap!) if not more.
If there's any honey in the old hive we will extract it and maybe even process some beeswax. Throughout the event I will be discussing Treatment Free beekeeping and the ethics of honey bee husbandry.
Can't wait to see you all there!!
