Larry Garrett has a unique top bar hive that handles supers. Larry once coined it the Franken hive. But it’s now called the Thur hive. The details can be seen on his Natural Bees site.

And he works with Warre’ hives as well. Check out that neat Warre bottom board/stand.

The Toolbox

Larry Garrett Inspection Box

Larry’s Inspection toolbox.

Larry dropped me a note and sent a photo of his inspection toolbox. What do you think?

I hate to admit it, but I often use a plastic 5 gallon bucket or one of those plastic storage bins.

After a couple of yard visits, everything ends up in one big messy pile. And if it’s hot and things get sticky, that’s one big messy stuck together pile.

Larry built this toolbox in an idle moment with a few scraps of wood.

There’s another bee toolbox, the Merrill toolbox, for those not wanting to build one.

What a neat addition. I think I’m going to have to change my messy ways. 🙂

Thanks Larry.
