Experienced Topbar Beek Available for Lesson?

Hi Beeks,I need some help with topbar hive maintenance. I have a new hive that is super productive with honey and brood. They've almost filled the hive and it's their first year.  However, they've gone cross-combing crazy and filled bars with honey that balloon out. These bees are just not wanting color within the lines!I tried working this out today and they became pretty sting happy and upset. I ended up having to close the hive without completing the job. As a fairly new beek I lost my cool…See More

"Hey Kim, Just do it the old fashion way-figure where you'd like to have your colonies reside and swing by the property with a jar of honey.  Give it some thought and pick more than one location, then give it a go! Honey is a sweet…"

Does anyone have land for hives?

Hi everyone. I am interested in starting a small apiary on a bit of farmland. Trouble is, I live in the heart of the city. My backyard doesn't have the capacity or shade for more than a couple of hives.Is there anyone out there who has a bit of land they would like to have hives on? Maybe we could work out some sort of exchange for honey/beeswax, and of course, pollination! Or does anyone have any ideas on how to connect with potentially interested farmers?Please feel free to contact me via…See More

This is my second year as a beekeeper. I have 2 hives. One in the city, one in Los Ranchos. Finally feel like I'm getting out of the beginner stage. But when it comes to troubleshooting, I still have lots to learn. I adore the bees (as I'm sure all of us do here)!
I use the following type of bee hives:

My bee hives are primarily located here (ZIP code):
