Аннотация к книге "Balanced Beekeeping I: Building a Top Bar Hive" Philip Chandler:
Top bar beekeeping really is 'beekeeping for everyone' - including people with mobility problems, bad backs, or a general reluctance to lift boxes: there is no heavy lifting once your hive is in place, as honey is harvested by the comb rather than by the box.
Top bar hives are good for bees, good for the beekeeper and good for the environment.
In this book, I will show you how easy it can be to build your own hive from scratch, using new or reclaimed timber and a few simple tools. If you can make a decent job of putting up a shelf, you can build yourself a fully functioning hive that bees will be proud to call home.
