However, if you enjoy building things and have a passion for bees, you might consider building your own beehives. With basic woodworking skills and good measuring skills, the only thing missing is the best beehive plans. Before a bee swarm leaves the mother colony, scout bees have been checking out new nest sites.

While bees do not actively build their own hives, they do have a plan. A honey bee colony knows exactly what they desire when choosing a home. The various new sites are evaluated using criteria that we only understand in part. General location, height about the ground, size of the entrance and interior dimensions seem to be part of the equation.

In the end, the bees choose a site for the new hive that they feel is the best one available. When we build and design hives , our goal is to mimic what that bees are hoping to find. Types of Beehive Plans Worldwide For the new beekeeper wishing to build a beehive , there are many different types of hives in use around the world.

Some of them are simple log hives. These homes for bees do not require any special woodworking tools. But other types of beehives do require good beehive plans. Failure to build the hive with instructions results in improper size and spacing. Wooden ware built to the wrong measurements will still work for the colony. This makes hive inspections difficult if not impossible. In many areas, you must have a beehive with removable frames. This is due to the need to check hives for disease.

It is impossible to manage a bee colony unless you can remove and view each frame. Simple Beehive Plans If you want to build the most simple beehive possible, most beekeepers would tell you to choose a Top Bar Hive. This hive style was developed in Kenya. The top bar hive could be constructed with materials that were readily available.

New beekeepers did not have to find and purchase special items. There was no need to order materials or build structures requiring exact measurements. Modern Top Bar Hive Plans do have instructions for measurements in their design. One thing to consider, after the hive is built and bees are inside, you have to manage the colony.

Management tasks vary a bit with different type of hives. Do you have someone in your area who is using the same type of hive? If not and you are a beginner, the Top Bar Hive might be a project for next year.

Historically, beekeepers used any natural materials that were available. The luxury of a beekeeping supply story or online ordering was not possible.

Cut List for the Ten-Frame Langstroth Hive

What I do is build them 15 boxes at a time. This gives me 15 deeps and 3 mediums. I begin by breaking them down on a table saw or with a rip fence on a circular saw. Once the fronts and sizes are cut you can begin assembling. The raised 90 degree corner acts like a jig and allows me to use it like a square to butt joint the corners. A nail angled down may pull out and result in dropping the whole box while carrying 80 lbs of honey and frames. For those of you who wish to use the 10 fame beehive, here are the plans for the boxes.
