Man, that is so much easier than any of the old ways.
Love to see a close up of the tap system. What a concept.

That is neat, it seems so simple that anyone could keep a hive.

My brothers father-in-law has bees. He often takes them to other areas to help with pollination of fruit crops.

I was running 100 plus hives. I sold all them except 6 now and slowed down some. I watched this about a week ago and think???? I know that I can spin the honey out of a frame, sit it outside and within 5 minutes or less it is covered with bees. You would have to tube it inside a jar to keep it from being covered with bees even with it on the back of the hive body. Come on up David and you can help me start some nucs about the 3 week in March. Bees are real gently and don't sting March. LOL

That is neat. I want to get some hives, but got so much going on and have to learn much before diving into it.

Took little time to figure out they are two man made combs to close for bees to get in between. If you look close the cells are angled toward each other making it flow to bottom.

I always run a deep hive body and a super for extra winter food. I guess that would go on top of the super and take it off for winter?? I would like to see one.

One question please: need all canadian vids to be dubbed in the USA (one of the scientist came from canada and so I thought it's a canadian vid)

Went online and they have started selling the set for a 8 frame deep hive body is $600 for one set up and for the 10 frame deep hive body is $650 if I read it correctly. For $3900 and shipping I think I'll just stay with the regular supers that I use now.

It may work but the prices are just way to far out there. Also I have a deep hive body and a super that is never robbed as that is their winter food supply but I figure it would go on top of it. Seems like your bee club has no faith in it either.
