Find here all the images or pictures related to the honey bee, apiary, and natural beehives. People want to learn more about the honey bee and get a clear idea when they see the pictures. So, we try to provide different types of the honey bee, apiary, and natural beehive pictures to help you know them well.
Honey Bee Hives: In the apiary, Beehives are naturally produced by bees and usually kept in a wooden box for Beekeeping. A box consists of 8 frames or 10 frames which is called the Brood chamber. These frames are artificially produced by beekeepers with the wax sheet to help the bees make their hives fast and easily.
While flowers are plentiful in nature like sunflower, mustard oil, Leches, etc. bees get enough nectar to collect and store in the hive. So, the beekeepers re-arrange their beehives as they tend to keep one super box above the Brood box.
Different Types Of Honey Bee Hives Picture – Apiary Hives
A standard brood box includes 10 frames or 8 frames installed with wax sheets (Fig 04). Their Structures are different in one country to another. Regardless of whatever the region you are living in, you can buy each piece of equipment separately or as a complete set from Amazon or eBay. The most popular structure and standard frames are shown below:
The brood box is the main box (Fig 91) where the queen and most of the bees live. At harvesting season a super box (Fig 02) is placed on the brood box to collect honey (Fig 3).
Usually, super box frames are smaller than the brood box as they consist only of honey. When they find the frame cells are vacant, they try to fill them with nectar and tend to work more to do so immediately.
So, when cells are full of nectar, they reduce their work and concentrate other works like capping the cells, maintain hives, collect water, Propolis, pollen, etc. They also nurse the queen, larva, and pupae and train the baby bees to enable them to collect nectar and other necessary things.
