I see this site is indeed a knowlidge treasury.
I done quite some research in the last few days. I have a rough idea of what l want to go for.
The flow hive seems like a amazeing idea, but upon some thinking and reading l have many concerns. I think its too invasive, and costy.
I found a guy doeing biodinamic beekeeping. Now that seems nice. Might pay him a visit. Basicly the bees are ofcorse inspected and medicated with some natural acids and thime oil, but otherwise they are more or less let to do their job on their own. They build their own comb.
Honey is not my priority. Its just a bonus. I always loved bees, but we never coud have them becouse l had a life thretning bee alergy. I think l overgrown it, if not, its time to train the body to do so.
Are the hives insulated for the winter?
