Good question Efmesch.
Very interesting concept Slag, I've never seen a suspended hive before. Is there a special reason for doing so?
thanks for sharing the photo slag, i always enjoy seeing where others keep bees and what hive configurations they are using. i have never seen a suspended hive as yours either, and as ef and perry have suggested, i would also be concerned about the weight, and would be curious as perry asked if there was a reason for doing so.
