Horizontal hive types

Andrew Bax, OxNatBees member and developer of the Drayton hive, has had an article published in January’s Beecraft magazine comparing different types of horizontal hive: their advantages and tradeoffs. You can read his review here:

Andrew Bax article on horizontal hives

Andrew has 30 years’ experience of beekeeping and became interested in alternative styles a few years ago, culminating in his blending of conventional and natural designs in the Drayton, which we reviewed here.

Our thanks to Andrew, and Richard Ricketts (editor of BeeCraft) for allowing us to reproduce the article.
