An inveterate beekeeper has established a new form of beehive said to make beekeeping easier for all.
Ronald Reed has developed a hive similar to both the horizontal top bar hive and Langstroth box style hive.
“Reed said that the common beehives are not very efficient and are too heavy for people to easily manage,” writes the Empire State Tribune.
“The Modern Top Bar beehive’s bottom box is long and horizontal where the honeybees can maintain their colonies and their queen very easily. A vertical box is placed ontop of the horizontal box so the bees are able to work in that space to create honey,” according to the Empire State Tribune.
According to the site, Reed has noted the new hive to be three-times as efficient in producing honey as older versions.
