دانلود رایگان کتاب Beehive Construction
Most beekeepers will assemble pre-cut beehive equipment at some time. Others go farther by manufacturing their own equipment. In either case, it is important to use standard dimensions and assembly methods to ensure that the equipment will be interchangeable, strong and durable. This publication offers dimensions and designs of individual hive parts, and a few assembly hints.
In Canada, the Langstroth movable-frame hive has been adopted as the hive standard. This hive design provides simplicity of construction and ease of manipulation, permitting rapid inspection and interchange of frames. Well-constructed equipment pays off in ease of management, and retains its resale value.
Note: Non-standard beehive equipment is occasionally promoted. Even though some designs may be practical and effective, we do notrecommend any non-standard equipment because of higher costs, limited resale value and poor management flexibility.
