    Do we need a forum for top bar, warre, and other non-conforming hives?

    I think its a great idea. The more forum topics we have the broader our user base will become.

    I've never seen one, but have read about them. They don't sound like something that would intrest me, i don't have room to store my ten frame equipment now,can you use some of the standard ten frame equipment with the top bar hives? This reminds me when i ask my daughter=in=law if she like turnips, she said (oh my gosh no), i ask her if she had ate any and how they were fixed, her answer was No i've never had any? So who knows i may like them if i tried them. I'm game. Jack

    could make for a good learning experience for those of us who don't have them or are curious.

    Top bar, Warre, and other such hives are becoming more and more popular, especially amongst those interested in more 'natural' type beekeeping and foundationless beekeeping. You should definitely have a forum for them, as the management of them is quite different from Langs.

    Sure, why not, as Panther Bro says. I'm not real interested in those sorts of things, but do find some things about them interesting. On a reinventing the wheel sorta vein.

    If there is interest enuf, set it up.

    Sounds good to me, I don't think I will ever set one up but it is good to know info that might help somebody else out.

    I say go for it!
