The dimensions were basically the same. We thank Phil Chandler for offering space for these pages on his site biobees.

Thus the total length of the wood is mm. He observed for a long time the construction of comb in the hives without frames and concluded that they only stick the upper tiers of their constructions to the walls of the hive.

We await information on the publication date of the first edition of the book. Half-frames Denis devotes a page of his web site to the issue of frames versus top-bars. Natural comb hives use a far lower weight of honey in winter than frame hives because the latter dissipate more heat.

He thus came to use simple top-bars too and found them satisfactory except that the fragile combs needed a lot more care and thus time to remove them. The rebate, side to side is mm in both cases and the thickness of the planed wood is 22mm and the overall depth is external x internal. But, for the sake of completeness, we provide a translation of the pages of the 5th edition describing the two versions of his hive with frames, the second having no bottom-bars.


So he developed an intermediate between the frame and the top-bar by adding projections of a few centimetres at each end of the top-bar.

To avoid it being propolised to the box wall, the gap should be a bee space or more, e. A translation of the section on the construction of the frame version is downloadable at: Top-bar Length A x otus x thickness.

His semi-frame is intended to prevent any comb attachment to the walls at the top. If the file has been modified from its original state, some details such as the timestamp may not fully reflect those of the original file.

It is only to a small extent but it is sufficient to inconvenience the beekeeper. For details of this book and e-book click here.
