Hive Parts

In 1853, the Rev. L.L. Langstroth published a book that describes the use of the bee hive as we know it today. The Langstroth bee hive is now the standard bee hive used in many parts of the world. The true innovation of the Langstroth hive was the creation of “bee space” within the hive. Langstroth recognized that bees failed to build burr comb between a space of one-fourth to three-eighths of an inch. If the space was too small the bees would glue it up. And if the area was too large the bees would build comb into the space. Therefore, beekeepers must use equipment that recognizes this natural habit of the bees. If this “bee space” is violated, the bees will cement everything together and removal of frames and boxes will be very difficult. Turns out even bees need a little “elbow room”!!
