    This is the first blog I’ve ever read and, fantasically, it’s about bees! Excellent!Nicks quite ocrrect; the less you interfere with bees, the better the results. I have two National Hives but am looking to move the bees over to Warres as the concept appears to be far more sustainable, a lot less traumatic for the bees and a lot less time consuming for me. As there is considerably less manipulation (opening of the hive) with a Warre it means the bees are not having the roof taken off their house, and the furniture inside moved around, every week which must surely strss them out.Therefore, a Warre will be a much better hive to keep in your garden; it’s relaxing to watch the bees, helps the plants, may result in some honey and is a great talking point with friends.I’d fully recommend beekeeping; it’s a fabulous hobby and costs me a lot less than my dog! If you have a club, or someone with whom you can team up, then that gives you greater confidence and knowledge. An excellent beginners book is called, Bees at the Bottom of my Garden . It’s funny, informative and written in an easy-to-understand way which just encourages you to keep readingGo for it.Best wishes,Tim.New Forest, Hampshire, England (the little guys across the water!)
