Long Lang


Howdy, of Bella Bee's, built a Long Lang for a client and asked us to share this with our club members. Excellent work! This is a hybrid of a vertical Langstroth and a top bar. The combination of removable frames and height of working area makes this an excellent candidate for those who would like to, avoid heavy lifting, as well as the extra time required to work a top bar hive. I have two of these and materials for 4 more! These were recommended to me after spinal fusion as a means to allow me to keep bees. No crush and strain required, unlike a normal top bar hive, a trait I find comforting knowing how much effort goes into producing wax.Howdy of Bella Bee's built a Long Lang for a client and ask us to share this with our club members.

(Note these pictures are of a hive was built by another club member (Marc Kenney). This Long Lang actually contains two different hives, one on each end and is capable of holding up to 44 deep Lang Frames.)
