My name is Dr Margriet Dogterom and am the founder and owner of Beediverse. I write this blog for all who love bees and who want to learn more about these wonderful creatures.

Our first yurts were made out of wood. and the nests were set up inside the yurt.
|These are two yurts, 6′ and 8′ in diameter. Dick Scarth and John McDonald discussing the merits of yurts. Nesting trays were set up inside the yurt, stacked on top of wooden boxes. Even on a cloudy day as when this picture was taken, it was nice and warm inside the yurt. The cover was made of tarp material. Note at the base of the wall, the tarp is covered with saw dust to prevent wind from entering underneath the wall of the yurt. Also note the elcetric fence to prevent bear predation.|
