In this work, the author explains his own use of a particular pattern of long hives which he has made to his own design, but which is derived from standard lines. The hives have been in use for ten years, which some bee keepers will say is not long enough to prove its efficiency. However, many different systems have been advocated and explained to bee keepers over the years, and how many of those systems, however long in use, have proved 100% efficient? Bees, like many things in nature, are compelled to adapt to their behaviour greatly to suit the varying climate year by year.
This book has been published to make bee keepers think, and I believe it may do just that.
