    It is getting near the end of the season here in Ireland, just the Ivy to crop then we will be shutting down for the winter. I need to add another super just incase the Ivy crops well so I need to get some more frames etc. I see that the new "Top Bar" hives are getting popular and was wondering if any of you guys have had experience with these? I like the idea of not using foundation and am experimenting with using frames only in my Langstroth Hives. Any thoughts?

    Not shure what you are describing.
    We're just starting this season. Let us know if you have any details of your experiments.
    That is the equipment we bought used to get started. Enough for 4 hives, but we'll start with two this season. These are the regular Langstroth.
