apicentric

Sun Hives, a new hive design gathering world-wide interest, are part of the movement towards “apicentric” beekeeping – beekeeping that prioritizes honeybees firstly as pollinators, with honey production being a secondary goal. The Sun Hive is modeled on the traditional European skep hive and is aimed at creating a hive that maximizes colony health.
