    Ok, first off, thanks for the help thus far. I want to now build a simple top bar hive, any easy to follow designs or plans that you know of? Second, i am in NJ and last year we had heavy snowfall winter and they predict a similar one this year too, would i need to do extra on a top bar hive for protection? I am really excited about this, so thanks for your help.
    P.S.
    I don't have to worry about the wood, but what other materials are needed for this type of hive?
    Where is the best spot to put the hive, under a tree?
    I found this site, but need a more simple approach with more pics...viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2537&p=20290#p20290
