Thread: Experience Russian beekeeper Vladimir Khomich.

    Can you perhaps rephrase your question?

    Mellifera Crofter, Kitta, sorry for my English.
    Vladimir Khomich my friend. I'm looking for on the Internet beekeepers who use such beehive. On your forum is not found. My question - Does anyone uses the hives?


    What race of bee is he working with? They are very dark but the odd one had a yellow band.

    Vladimir says about the breed - probably karpatka. Perhaps karpatka sister carnika. Vladimir exchanges with other beekeepers best queens.


    The main thing unfamiliar was the additional slotted entrance just above the standard entrance. I assumed this might be a way to simply reduce the

    entrance to stop robbing?
    Apparently, it is a winter bottom box. Dead bees will not close the slot entrance.

    Vladimir says about himself on his website. In Russian - http://pchelhom.ucoz.ru/
    In English by Google - http://translate.google.com/translat...hom.ucoz.ru%2F

    Correx! Would look good with Vladimir Putin on the front!
    Sorry. This is not Putin. I do not understand this humor. Sorry.

    That would make such a great signature line

    A superficial look suggests that this is another excellent link Fidan, some interesting looking articles to read. Thanks again.

    Hi Fidan.

    Apologies for the twisted humour. Could not resist!

    I make temporary plastic boxes out of old election posters.
    The box in the video has one of our local politicians on it.

    Careful Jon, that probably counts as hooliganism !

    Good idea for the winter entrance ... Kielers could do with one like that. They have that stupid sort of angled tunnel which can get blocked with corpses.

    Apparently the French are looking for another two fat celebrities to go along with Depardieu to swap for the Pussy Riot trio.

    I can not read your humor friendly. However, it is your right. I'm just your guest.

    And a very welcome one, Fidan. At least your English is good enough for you to recognise it as humour.

    Hi Fidan,

    Thanks for linking the video, very interesting. I can't say that I recognise the hive type in the video though the principle of using boxes all the same size for brood and honey isn't that unusual but this:



    Is far more common a hive type in the UK. i.e. a larger brood box with smaller supers for collecting honey.
