What is a Bee Hive?
That is a good question for those that want to get into beekeeping. They don’t tell you this in school but it is actually called an apiary. Well, the group of beehives is called an apiary. Anyway, if have been paying attention to the scientific news, scientist are worried about the decline in bee populations. This is a real issue.

Did you know you can help?
You might be asking “why does that matter they will only sting me”. It just so turns out that bees have a huge influence on plant pollination. Now, what you should have learned in school is that without plants animals won’t survive. So, this is very important.
So this is why I am talking about building a beehive. You have a couple of options. I guess you could just buy them instead of building…lol. The frames for the honeycomb itself will be the hardest. But for the box itself, you really would have to make it would be like a filing cabinet.
I have not given any specifics because there really are none. In the wild bees would make hives out of a hollowed out tree. They just need somewhere to store their honey. I know this is pretty lackluster but it really is just a box with enough support to have the bee create the honeycomb and they need a way in and out.
Here is the thing bee might not just come to your door. You will have to buy them. I found a good resource for this though. You are really only as smart as your resources. You might hear me say that a lot.
I found a good article on wiki how. This will tell you step by step how to find bees.
