How do I space my bee hive? I mean the distances


How do we spaces our bee hive from each other?


Hiya Nwodo, great question. Ive seen hives In cold climates touching side by side for combined warmth yet here in a warmer region I have them about 1 metre apart and have good results. I don’t think there a set distance.
Number of colonys in a given area is a different kettle of fish though.


What do you mean by your last statement Skeggsie?


I don’t understand your question?


Mine are touching each other.


Availability of forage in the area may limit the hive density. This can change with the seasons which is why commercial beeks follow the flow.
