Top Bar Hive, Kenya (KTBH)

A KTBH is determined by the sloping sides of the hive. This was designed to be hung and not placed on the ground. One set of plans are available HERE. Note - The angle and size of the above plans should be altered, as the size mentioned will not provide adequate brood and storage areas. See the photo for a better size. Ghana version plans on TBH HERE. There are multiple versions of Top Bar hives displayed on this site, see alpha list. There also DIY top bar hive plans in the "build it yourself" section of this site.
