Patrick's Top Bar Beehives

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Patrick's Top Bar BeehivesMy brother is an apiarist. Honey Bees are amazing little creatures. In doing a little research, it is evident that our ecosystem would crash without these powerful pollinators. So my brother needed some new beehives. And while bees can take up residence in all sorts of spaces, the physics and shape of a top bar beehive offers many advantages over the white boxes most of us are familiar with. There's no shortage of plans on the internet and likewise, more YouTube videos than you can watch in a weekend! Oh, yeah. The honey is a pretty useful byproduct of their labors. So if you see a swarm of bees somewhere that you's prefer they not be, don't kill them—-call a beekeeper and feel all the better for it.
For the longest time, scientists were unable to explain how bees could fly. Turns out it's quite and exotic mechanism that keeps them airborne. Check out this site for an explanation.

As for the very complex eyes on bees, they can't see red but in the spectrum from mid orange to ultraviolet, we've got nothing on them. Explained in this website, it gives a clue why I chose blue and green for the colors.
