    Hi Everyone, I am an artist looking for the wax honeycomb that is made freeform, like bees do in the wild, that don't form their wax hives in perfect box grids, but instead make kind of like rounded disk-shaped tiered hives. I was told that the kind of hive that would produce that kind of honeycomb shape would be called a "Top Bar Hive". Here is a link to to an image that shows something like what I am trying to find - http://www.flickr.com/photos/-lj-/3753928072/.

    Might anyone in this group have that kind of honeycomb wax that they could give me? I could pay you for it.

    I want to put in a sculpture that I am making with a reproduction of a log and the hive part would be inside of a hole in the log. Please leave me a message through the contact area on my meetup page, if you would like to help. Thanks,

    Can I buy a couple of jars of honey from someone? Will you bring it to the meeting? Skokie is making me get rid of my bees for sure now, and I'd like some honey for the winter.
