More and more organically minded
beekeepers are now using top-bar hives, inwhich the shape of the interior resemblesa hollow log. Long-lasting and completelybiodegradable, a top-bar hive made of untreated wood allows bees to build
comb naturally rather than simply lling
prefabricated foundation frames in a typicalbox hive.
Top-Bar Beekeeping 
providescomplete information on hive managementand other aspects of using these innovativehives. All home and hobbyist beekeeperswho have the time and interest in keepingbees should consider the natural, low-stress methods outlined in this book.
It will also appeal to home orchardists,
gardeners, and permaculture practitionerswho look to bees for pollination as well ashoney or beeswax.
This book uncovers the biggest scienticfraud of our age. It tells the fascinating
and astounding story of how the massiveenterprise to restructure the geneticcore of the world’s food supply came intobeing, how it advanced by consistentlyviolating the protocols of science,and how for more than three decadeshundreds of eminent biologists andesteemed institutions have systematicallycontorted the truth in order to concealthe unique risks of its products—and getthem onto our dinner plates.
