How to Build a Beehive or Bee Box
Are you interested in learning how to build a beehive? Many new beekeepers want the total beekeeping experience. After purchasing most of their beekeeping supplies & equipment, they yearn to build their own bee boxes. This is an obtainable goal for those of you with some carpentry experience.

Why they want to avoid my perfectly awesome hive for some tree in the woods – who knows? But poorly constructed beehives cause problems for the beekeeper later on.
