|Warré beehive set up 5.9.15|
The Warre hive was developed by Gustave Emile Warre (1857-1951) which he referred to as "Ruche Populaire " or "The People's Hive".
These hives look very easy to build from scratch. The only part I can't easily do at the moment is the rabbet. Maybe I can give myself a router as a retirement present next year, with a rabbet bit.
I lost the info, but I think these new bees are Russian:Carniolan hybrids. That was on the Beethinking website last year.
