Is there some detailed easy to read instructions on how to make this bee hive with the frames? or can someone provide me with there dimensions of their hive and frames? and some pictures would also be appreciated? Also do you need the template for the bees to make the combs on or can they do it by themselves? If so can I make one myself? How? this hive is just for fun I won't be collecting the honey if that matters.
why wouldn't you collect the honey??? you would be much further ahead to buy the frames, they're not too bad for price.
I use the plastic ones, they're cheaper and more durable. foundation has the comb stamped in it but bees will make comb on ANYTHING if you let them. the dimensions are very important because if the 'bee space' isn't right, the bees will glue everything tight with propilis which makes it a real pain to get apart usually losing alot of honey in the process.
