Bees naturally build their honey combs downwards.

Top Bar hives allow for this natural behaviour.

These next beekeeping videos demonstrate how to convert from a framed bee hive to a top bar hive.

The 'chop and crop' technique is used to ensure minimal disturbance to the bees.

When transferring bees from a Dadant beehive, to a Top Bar bee hive, such a task is best performed during the first half of the season.
