I'm writing an article for a new natural beekeeping journal and would like to be able to mention that hTBHs are used to produce honey for sale. I know that happens in Africa, but do any members of this group elsewhere than in Africa produce honey for sale from their top-bar hives?

Hi David,

I guess Wyatt Mangum must sell his hTBH honey, as he claims to run approx. 200 hives.

Cheers,

Thanks for responding. I contacted him on 28 July and he responded 'No but my TBHs are for scientific research as I tell people all the time'.

Heather Harrell and Les Crowder produce some though.

Otherwise its seems quite rare for hTBH users in developed countries to produce honey for sale. In Africa it is less rare, but the producers there are heavily outnumbered by log and bark hive users.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
