how to make a topbar beehive
This is a video that shows the basics of how I make my Topbar beehives. This is not how I make all of them. If you have any suggestions on how to improve I'd love to hear it. Thanks.

ziplock freezer bag feeder
using a 1 gal freezer bag to dispense 2:1 sugar water for the bees. The bag was a little over filled and I lost some of the feeding. The bees will probably catch it on the outside of the hive.

solar wax melter from scraps
Using 2 entertainment stand glass doors and wood scraps I was able to throw together this wax melter. It was about 75 degrees that day and around midday it got to 120+ degrees. I painted the inside black and added a cookie sheet as my pan. I will probably put some insulation between the melter and the doors. there is a gap and they are just resting on the frame right now. More video when I am able to melt some wax.

seth topbar.wmv
topbar beehive I have built for my son. It used Phil Chandler's periscope concept as well as screened bottom and a modified, homemade entrance feeder at the rear of the hive. I will be putting russians in there in the spring at a second beeyard. Will keep you post. Please comment. Thanks.

top bar hive to frameless lang
My strongest topbar hive needed to shook into a frameless lang. I was able locate the queen and shake the bees in. The bars I planned to rubber band in the frame were chop and crop nucs (deeps) and the comb really didn't have any brood to speak of. I messed with the smoker quite a bit and it did not want to stay lit. came out better than my previous videos though.

tobago tobar transfer
this first year tobago style topbar hive has filled the entire space within the hive body since May of this year. It has a design flaw that made it necessary to change out hive bodies. Hopefully they will aclimate quickly and get ready for winter because I think they will produce well next year if they survive.

top bar hive #3
Bees are drawing out the honey comb and the darker centers are where they have deposited nectar/honey. Still a little thin for honey.

early spring harvest
honey and wax taken from some crossed top bars yielded about 6 lbs of honey and a pound of wax.

november bee rescue
sideways view of a hive of bees that were removed this past november during a house rennovation. the bees needed removed or they were going to be exterminated. to date they are building comb and taking sugar water and honey from the removal. curious to see if I will be able to keep them alive until spring. this is a sideways view of the cluster (sorry). the cluster is hanging from the top bars as well as connecting itself to a piece of comb on the floor of the hive

hive #3, late swarm top bar mid september
This was a July swarm we introduced with no comb to start the hive with. This has quickly turned into a strong hive and hoping it will survive its first winter.
