Franco-german booty

Hans grabner is a master carpenter. But he is also a beekeeper. What could be more obvious than to combine the two?? As a beekeeper’s carpenter, he handcrafts bee hives for professional and hobby beekeepers. These are known in the country simply as "beehives" there is an almost incomprehensible variety of these products on the market.
For hans grabner this is basically no problem. He knows the mabe for langstroth-, dadant-, segeberger- or zanderbeuten and many other formats more. What had been bothering him for some time, however, was a new development from france, which could not be used by german beekeepers in many cases because of these very different mabe.
The french company nicot now produces plastic parts for bee hives. "Not every beekeeper likes plastic, but for some parts it has major advantages over wood", says a master carpenter like hans grabner of all people. "The floor in particular is threatened by weathering due to moisture," he explains, he names a decisive disadvantage. A plastic floor like this offers decisive advantages. In his garden, grabner uses one of his hives to show what else he likes about the parts from france. He pulls out a white intermediate bottom and takes it under the magnifying glass. "Here, this is a mite, he points to a small dot that can be clearly seen on the white plastic part. "On these intermediate floors you can check very well if the colony is infested with varroa mite and if you have to treat", he explains.
The plastic lid from the french production also inspires him: "the lid locks into place, so it is storm-proof even without a stone or something to weigh it down." Still remains the feeder in the inner life of the box. The fact that the beekeeper opens the box does not seem to bother the bees. Not even when he pushes some aside so that the component can be seen clearly, do they get aggressive. "It depends there also very much on the race", he explains. His are apparently of a rather balanced. Grabner also finds the feeder very practical and very good to work with: "that’s a fine, clean thing to do."
The fact that these fine things did not want to fit in at all with the most commonly used vehicles in germany was what drove the 86-year old to his decision. He set about planning. "I really worked up a sweat until I had thought out and drawn the hives that were compatible with the german frames", he confessed to the german bee journal, which has already presented his development to the beekeeping scene. The tufting was worth it. The hives that grabner now manufactures can be combined with all nicot components. This applies to dadant, zander and deutschnormalmab as well as to langstroth and heroldbeuten. In the meantime, the hives made of 25 millimeter weymouth pine and plastic from the workshop of hans grabner and his son steffen have already been inspected by the bee center in veitshochheim. "There you find the combination successful", says hans grabner not without pride.

Geesdorf finds too few holes

Geesdorf finds too few holes

Sometimes he complained, sometimes he gesticulated wildly, not to mention loud and clear instructions. He seemed to be clearly displeased with what his proteges brought to the geesdorf pitch against the second-last team in the table from lichtenfels. And he seemed to agree with the spectators, who also had little positive to say about the muden 1:1 draw. After the final whistle and a few minutes of pause, FC player-coach jannik feidel knew how to assess what he had seen: "of course we had hoped for more. But we looked stable throughout the game and always tried to run the ball and create chances."

With both the 23-year-old was right. Only the fubballspielen succeeded only rarely. The hosts all too often did not bring the necessary tempo into their ball forward, often held the leather too long or simply passed too often. Also the runs were not always right, which feidel attributed to the fact that he had to make three changes compared to the previous week, when simon weiglein, fabio feidel and luca fischer had been in the starting line-up.

Thus, the home side had problems against massive standing and consistently defending lichtenfelser, who had conceded a whopping 25 goals in their previous eight games, to come to dangerous conclusions. Vincent held, who also had a weak game and rarely played an active role in the geesdorf game, hardly received any useful passes and hung in the air for almost the entire 90 minutes. Only once in the first half did the black-and-whites get him into position, and that promptly led to the opening goal. Held had asserted himself on the left wing, got rid of two opponents and passed sharply into the center. It took niclas staudt three attempts against keeper christoph kraus and daniel schardt, but he finally got the ball over the line.
