I only know of a Warré in the Healdsberg area, an hour+ north of San Francisco. There are a couple bee "clubs" locally, in SF. Are there any other "People's Hive" / Warré users? Or - interested?

SF being somewhat cool, I am using Carnies.
My Warré is a modification.
Also interested in thermal readings and traffic counters, etc.

TIA-

A guild friend in Pescadero was setting up a Warre but haven't corresponded with her to find out how it's working out.

The reason is that nothing else has been used in America for about 100 years. And it's 'Langstroth', BTW - he was an American priest. As you sell beekeeping equipment, I would have thought you would know that.

What do you think that reason is?

The Gilroy beekeepers club also has a few members that have Warre hives. They also gave a talk about the Warre hive at one of their meeting a few months ago.

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

More about bumblebees and solitary bees here
