    A hive referred to as the “Langstroth” is probably the most frequently used beehive by beekeepers in the present. It is classified as a moveable frame bee hive since it can be moved easily in comparison to other hives. It is comprised of nine or ten wooden frames which house the honey combs. It does not require a ceiling or floor as the frames hang suspended from the frames’ holders.

    The foundation of every Langstroth Hive is comprised of a bit of plastic or sheet wax. This gives the bees with a platform to begin creating honeycombs inside the frame. When the frames are suspended, the bees have freedom of movement throughout the hive, so they can drop their pollen into honeycombs. Because the frames can be removed they can be taken out to collect honey. Additionally, the honeycombs are reusable after the honey is extracted. This design of the hive allows both the beekeeper and the bees to utilize.

    Some beekeepers use top-bar hives. These are hives designed to hold the honey combs suspended from bars that run across the surface, hence its name. These hives are modelled after hives that are commonly located in Africa. Because of this style of design, honey production is not as high and honey combs cannot be used again after the harvest. But the honey that is produced is of top quality.

    There are several aspects to consider when it comes to beekeeping prior to deciding on the kind of hive you’ll choose to use. First, ensure that the local codes or regulations within your area permit beekeeping on the type of property you intend to set up your hive on. Then, think about the location of your beehive. The ideal is to position it as away from your home as well as commercial establishments and places for public enjoyment. Bees can be upsetting to some people, specifically those who are allergic to stings from bees. It is easier to avoid the possibility of problems if your beehive is kept out of public spaces.

    Even though bees can find flowering sources on their own however, it’s a good idea to place your hive in close proximity to fresh water and food supply. If food sources are not readily available, like in colder months or more harsh climates, it is essential to supplement the food supply with the sugary syrup of bees. For the water supply it is as simple as a fountain in the garden will do.
