Here are a few pics of the top bar hive in action. They started out with a 3 lb. box of bees (approx. 6000 bees) in May. It’s estimated to have 40,000 now. The comb is mostly white ‘cause they’ve been feeding a lot of sugar water this first year but the honey is really good. Glad to see my first hive doing so well. They’ve been doing good even with 100+ deg. temps. The real test will be how well they winter here in NJ.
