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.

That hardware cloth looks big to me and looks to be 1/4 inch hardware cloth--not 1/8 th inch? Is this just from the camera zoom or something? It looks the same size as I used but I doubled it to end up with 1/8 X 1/4 inch holes. Not quite # 8 but that stuff is very hard to find!!

this was one of my first videos. I don't the view hole on the ones the I build now. also if the queen has clipped wings and falls she can end up unable to return taking the colony with her.

Great video, I'm also switching to the end entrance on my TBH. In northern Michigan, I cover the bottom screen in winter.

Nice Vid I dont like the entrance and the top I use some spacer and not the standing of the bars.

Phillip Chandler (from UK) has a free .pdf book with detailed step by step instructions on how to make a TBH.  We made one from his instructions and it works just great.

Great hive, very strong!  Say, where do you get the Russian bees?  Are they available in the US?

Do the bees plug the screen up with propolis? Is there any hive beetle issue with the screen? Thanks

When I followed this - my end boards don't line up well. My side "long" boards protrude out some from the angle of the end board. ?? On the other plans for tbh - 15", 5", 12" - they fit perfectly. is it because they are using 1x12's and I am using the 2x12's like you did?

if you don't have a bottom hole - how can the bees push out the dead bees from the hives? I have read they do that. could you have both?
Thank you for interesting video! Best wishes fro Ukraine and happy beekeeping! :)

At what degree do you slant the sides?
Martin Rodriguez (4 года назад)
I guess the difficult part would then be scrapping the comb off of the sides. I've heard making them at 30*, I believe, will make the bees not stick the comb to the sides. It's how I built mine but still find myself having to scrape the sides. I post a vid actually. I'd love to hear about your bee adventures.

Many TBH's have a bottom slider board an inch below the netting, so you can make it a bit comfier in the winter. Bees in the wild often have big openings, and remember, heat rises, so the hive stays at a fairly constant 35°C (95°F), regardless of weather. The main heat loss is from too much human interference, where the keeper constantly opens up the hive to "check" on the bees - heat and isolation escapes, making the bees more vulnerable to disease and they have to work hard to reheat the hive.

I do mine very similar. I started with the plans over at biobees and just modified things to suit my desire. I originally had entrances on the sides of mine to I could have several hives in one box if I wanted but later I switched to all "end" entrances

Хороший урок . Благодарю за ваши подсказки . Значек тоже понравился . Спасибо

Do you leave the bottom of the hive open all winter? How cold can the bees survive if the bottom is open? Thanks.
