Backyard Beekeeping is becoming more and more popular. Top Bar Bee Hives (TBH) offer a greater success rate than the standard Langstroth (Box) type. The TBH is a more natural environment for the bees. They require less work, less lifting and require no storage of boxes during the winter. They are great for disabled beekeepers because of their working height. We need bees in the US and this is a great family hobby!
