    ‘ve kept bees for years and the old fashioned super structure and brood chambers are the best.

    A friend had a backyard hive. I was amazed at how docile the bees were. We stood right next to the big hive and the bees came and went completely ignoring us. So cool. Thanks for the info!

    Check out PaladinPrepper’s youtube channel…in fact…I’ll go post a link. I should have done that anyway. Sorry.

    Thank you thank you. I just bought a topbar hive off ebay, and have a smoker and I bought a video for organic bee hives. We had 10 hives on our farm growing up, but I believe the top bar is less expensive than other hives.

    HI Katzcradel, straining the honey with mason jars and screen looks really problematic. I use to food grade 5 gallon buckets with cheese cloth. At home depot they have cheese cloth for painting that has an elastic around the edges especially made for 5 gallon buckets. Drill holes at the bottom of one bucket, cut a big circle out of one lid so the honey can pass through. so the order will go like this from the bottom up. bucket, lid with big hole, bucket with drilled holes, cheese cloth, othr lid

  13. jimmy40290 says:

    you can also put a nozzle or gate at the bottom of the bottom bucket to let honey poor out instead of having to tip the bucket. That’s what I do anyway.

  14. jimmy40290 says:

    After using both methods I would have to agree.
