    Not beekeeping yet, but thought I'd lurk around to listen in on discussions and learn more about the topic.

    Welcome Dave. Greetings from Texas. This forum doesn't have a lot of current population, but the pasted posts, and the historical message base will give you plenty to read to get a good foundation in beekeeping

    Does anyone out there work with horizontal hives ? I just built 2 of them a few months ago and installed a nuc in each one. I love it after years of back breaking (lifting full honey supers) and total disruption of the hives, the horizontal hives have a great number of benefits especially if you are a backyard beekeeper.

    I am using a horizontal lang. Only into my 2nd year. I did not start vertically as I knew that my back would not take the abuse. Even now, I can only get thru 1/2 - 2/3 of the hive on each inspection, but then I do dawdle a bit :)
