Objections To Suspended Hives

All suspended hives _must be objectionable_ to any one who wishes to

know the _true_ condition of his bees at all times. Only think of the

trouble of unhooking the bottom-board, and getting down on your back,

or twisting your neck till your head is dizzy, to look up among the

combs, and then see nothing satisfactory for want of light; or to lift

the hive from its supporters, and turn it over. The operation is too

formidable for an indolent man, or one that has much other business.

The examination would very probably be put off till quite sure it would

do no longer, and sometimes a few days after that, when you will very

often find your bees past remedy.
