A less-stressed hive is a healthier one. Continually added struggles a colony must overcome ranging from: weather; pesticides; pests: disease to hive disruption decreases available time bees have for regular hive duties causing stress. Research and invention by Nubees Concepts produced a hive that mitigates these stresses allowing a healthier colony to flourish. Whatever a beekeeper can do to reduce stress, will benefit the the apiary.
Bees originally invited me into beekeeping when I was completely surrounded by a wonderful buzz while pruning a blooming palm tree. I've been with them ever since.
