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


#1

How do we spaces our bee hive from each other?


#2

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?


#4

I don’t understand your question?


#5

Mine are touching each other.


#6

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.
