Product Description

The Langstroth bee hive is the standard beehive used in many parts of the world for bee keeping. The advantage of the Langstroth hive over hives previous to its invention on October 30, 1851, is that the bees build honeycomb into frames, which can be moved with little trouble because the frames are designed so that the bees do not attach wax honeycomb between the frames or to the walls of the hive, and do not cement the frames to the side of the box using a resinous substance called propolis. This ability to move the frames allows the beekeeper to manage the bees in a way that had previously been impossible.

Other inventors, notably Huber, had designed hives with movable frames, but Langstroth's hive was the first practical movable frame hive which overcame the tendency of the bees to fill empty spaces with comb and to cement smaller spaces together with propolis. This practicality is demonstrated by the eventual adoption of the Langstroth hive over all others, and its current use throughout the world.
