You will need plywood, the cans themselves, and a little perseverance. An ingenious and simple design that will save you a lot of time.
What is needed
- Plywood sheet (10-15 mm thick).
- 12 cans of the same size (800-1000 ml)
- Medium screws
- Screwdriver and screwdriver
- Wood stain (dark)
Before making a hive, we prepare the necessary tools. We take a sheet of plywood. With a pencil, mark 12 points at an equal distance. We retreat 10 cm from each edge.You should get the same markings as in the picture. There can be more or less points (depending on the diameter of the cans).
With a jigsaw and cut out round holes at the intersection of the lines. Banks must fit snugly into them.
Along the perimeter of the plywood, we fasten a frame of planks with screws.
You should also reinforce the hive with planks from the inside so that the structure does not sag under the weight of honey.
We place the hive box at the bottom. We attach frames for honeycombs. Next, cover the structure with a sheet with holes for cans. Do not forget to put a special lattice so that the uterus does not "fill" one of the jars with larvae.
We open the structure with stain and mount the cans.
The hive is ready! And if you also put ready-made combs in the new house, then the bees will deposit honey directly into the jars.
