Would like to build a hive with my children

I was hoping some of you would have a good website to suggest to us on how to build a beehive for honey bees. I think it would be so much more fun if we can build it for the bees :) I would also take book suggestions, but unfortunately, our library takes weeks to get books in. And I hate waiting ;)


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Is there a Bee group in your area? Mine established their own bee library for the use of the members. One of their books is "Beekeeping for Dummies." Some of these posts have information on hives but may be several pages back by now.
