Building a hive - measurements in m


For anyone wanting to build their own boxes, measurements below are in mm, as it is often quite difficult to find.

Boxes come in different depths and widths. The usual external measurements are:

10 frame (width x length ) 406mm x 508mm
8 frame (width x length ) 352mm x 508mm


Hi Jeff,
I believe the Langstroth 12,10 or 8 frames are 241 mm deep.


Hey Cuteboy. There is a excellent PDF produced by the Australian Government Dept. Agriculture that has heaps of information about building bee hives. I’ve uploaded the doco to my website here for you. Hope it helps!
