Top bar beehive vs a horizontal?
Hello all. First time beekeeper myself (had experience helping parents over the years). I'm getting my bees this weekend and I'm going to be building my hive over the next few days. My parents used a langstroth hive but i was planning on making a bar top or horizontal hive because it looks easy and as I read….it's a better environment for the bees. My question is what is the difference between the two? Only one that sticks out is the v shape in the top bar vs a box shaped horizontal. Is there any benefit for one over the other?
