Beekeeping Supplies in France


Recommended Posts

Hi Pierre,

Beekeeping is good, I practice the old way of telling the bees the news- very important (even Terry Pratchett agrees). Our problem is our hives are the regular Uk Langstroth, here they seem to use Dadant hives (ruches). The frames sizes are different and at 100 euros a throw for a ruche, you see why we want to keep our existing type of hive. Also over here the wax foundation is not wired, you wire the wax to the frame via a 12volt battery & jump leads - I kid you not! We usuallu buy already wired wax in the Uk.

You can get a small nucleus of queen and workers and start from there. If you have a garden, have a hive!
