Apis Cerana Japonica the Traditional Japanese Way
Interested in natural beekeeping around the world? Check out Mituro36’s YouTube Channel. He uses a traditional Japanese hive that has much in common with the Warre’ hive. I’ve thought that such a hive, without the interference of the traditional top bars, might be a more natural hive for the bees.
Here’s how he makes the hive. And what a neat way to show how it’s done!
And check out his Japanese bees, Apis cerana japonica. Watch how they jointly guard their hive entrance. It’s a different bee and they do it differently than our western Apis mellefera honeybees. Their coordinated reactions sure keep that giant wasp at bay.
Additional video links are posted on Mituro36’s Facebook Page. Need more zip for your sport’s drink? I know what it’s missing. 🙂
And thanks to the guys at the WarreBeekeeping for reminding me of Mituro’s videos. It has been awhile since I’d stopped by his site for a visit. I appreciate the English versions. Thanks Mituro.
