"As someone who has devoted his scientific career to investigating the marvelous inner workings of honey bee colonies, it saddens me to see how profoundly -and ever increasingly- conventional beekeeping disrupts and endangers the lives of colonies."
Dr. Thomas D. Seeley
The quote above is from this article he wrote for the Natural Beekeeping Trust which you can find here. Just copy and paste this link into a new window:
Bee Tree Hives are designed to address every difference Dr. Seeley lists between the hive cavity (Langstroth or National hives) that conventional beekeeping subjects honey bees to, and the hive cavities that honey bees choose in the wild. They also address Dr. Seeley's suggestions toward the end of the article.
Bee-centered beekeeping, then, addresses all of the other differences that Dr. Seeley lists besides the ones related directly to the hive cavity.
