The different types of beehives

  1. 1. The Different Types of Beehives
  2. 2. It is over 15,000 years now that humansare attuned with beekeeping:
  3. 3. The Traditional Beehives:In this traditional method, there is no internalstructure available for the bees, as a reason ofwhich bees are required to develop their ownhoneycomb into the beehives. The combs, in suchhives, are usually attached with each other sothese cannot be removed singularly other thandestroying. Because of the immovable nature,these hives are called fixed-frame hives.
  4. 4. Skeps HivesSkeps hives (hollowed or shaped like a basket)are made of straw or grass. There is a singleentry point with no internal structure so thecolony is left to produce its own comb. Thecolony has to be destroyed for extracting thehoney, after driving the bees out of theskep. Such hives are being built and used forover 2000 years.
  5. 5. Mud And Clay HivesMud hives are extended, long cylinders madewith a blend of dung, straw, and unbakedmud while clay hives are built of baked clay,primarily used for maintaining a reducednumber of colonies. One end of the hive issmoked to drive the bees out.
  6. 6. Bee gumThis is a structure in which a hollowed log,mainly from red gum tree, is used fordeveloping the colony. The opening end fromthe topmost side of the log is usually coveredby using wood so that it can serve thepurpose of a roof. The hives are destroyed forcollecting the honey when it is time toharvesting.
  7. 7. Modern-Day HivesWith the development in this practice, thehives have been modified and improvised.From fixed-frame hives, they have beenconverted into movable structures for betterutilization of resource and enhancedflexibility of harvesting.
