Thanks Mr. K!  I would like to read more about his operation.  My TBH's are very healthy hives.  I have let them go without harvesting and this is the second season for them.  I wonder how long it took for his tbh's to draw out all five feet?  My hives are just now approaching the half way point of my four foot tbh.

Thank yankee11, I was looking for a picture of strapping a hive and stumbled across it and the bear fence link I posted. You could put words in a search and miss some of the best information on the web and get directed to sights that contain crap and advertising links. It is in sharing the good links we find mostly by accident, that we get to the good sights and information. Now that 200 Top-Bar Hives has been posted on this sight and as been discuses and because of this sites traffic volume, it is more likely to show up in a search.
