SUN bee HIVE: This new design is part of a movement towards "apicentric" beekeeping that prioritises honeybees firstly as pollinators, with honey production being a secondary goal. - Modelled on the traditional European skep hive, maximizes colony health.
Using Essential Oils for Honeybees. Three primary essential oils are useful in beekeeping: lemongrass, spearmint and thyme. Other oils such as wintergreen, spearmint and tea tree oil are also used in some formulations.
