Old versus New Beehives

Beehives from the early 1800s
The picture above is an example of how people kept bees before the discovery of "bee space" and removable frames by Lorenzo Langstroth in 1852. The hives were simply hollowed out logs with small openings in the bottom. It is illegal now in the US to keep bees in logs or skeps. The hives must have removable frames, which not only is a less invasive method but also a way for state inspectors to quickly check hives for possible disease. The picture below is of one of my hives. I keep this hive in the driveway :)
