A-LITTLE SKEP HISTORY:
In my own words 🙂
Skeps are a hollow dome like shape. They’re made of straw with a basket- like technique.
Skeps were used to house honey bees where it’s dry and clean.
Long ago it is said that couples were given skeps as wedding gifts to start their own hives.
They are not to be used with the intent to house honey bees today because while extracting the comb and honey it is likely to kill bee life. The world needs honey bees!
