No I didn't see it Jo - I've only seen 2 posts - one about 2 swarms of bees in someone's garden & the other from a mum worried because bees had made a home under her decking - but I don't think there were any arguments ensuing from either post.
Perhaps you could post a link if you find it again please?
I certainly have no intention of getting into arguments about the rights and wrongs of different methods of beekeeping. I just know I don't want to have a hive if I have to manage it in the 'traditional' way. If, however, there is an alternative, safe, hands off, bee-centred approach I can adopt - this is what I would aim for - hence the research.
I cannot help thinking that it must be possible. Bees have been making hives quite naturally for millennia without any intervention from man...
