DIY Top Bar Hive from a Barrel

Why in the world would you go out of your way to keep little bugs that sting you when you make them mad? Well, that was the sentiment not long ago. Until we realized that our technology was destroying these bees and that we are dependent on them. All of the sudden we have a government that is paying people to keep bees and honey is not even a motivation for many. Growing your own food is growing and growing in popularity. Its an incredible thing to consider.

This is a great way to make a hive from a barrel. You will really appreciate this DIY build and it may even spark your interest in beekeeping. Don’t forget, these are the master pollinators. They will undoubtedly affect your natural landscape and the food that you grow on your property. Would this build work for you?
