The View from Taiwan: The Apiary

The View from Taiwan: The Apiary

There are some really neat pictures of an Apiary that is operated by a husband & wife in Taiwan. I'm amazed they work their honeybee colonies without any protective gear whatsoever. Notice the wife is wearing sandals! Obviously, they have been "beeks" for quite some time to have achieved this level of comfort. Perhaps one day I will achieve a similar level of comfort. But....for know I will be "geared up" when I enter my hives ! ! !

Thanks for the link! Lots of the orchards in our area, which grow lychees, operate apiaries like this, I found out later.

As for the gear, Taiwanese are not exactly safety-oriented.
