This fact often leads even mature beekeepers to show off in front of non-beekeepers, and small children have been known to trick their teachers by presenting them with a handful of buzzing drones. 22 | A P R AC T I C A L M A N UA L O F B E E K E E P I N G Drones and mating The drone is optimized for mating and, to do this to best effect, he needs to be able to fly extremely fast (his flight muscles and wing size are larger than worker bees’), to have extremely sharp vision and an extraordinary array of sense organs designed to respond to queen and other drone pheromones over large distances.
The cavity or beehive must be well sited in an area where forage and water are available and where it is protected from the elements. The beekeeper’s role is to ensure that the bees’ living requirements are met and that they are protected from disease and starvation. Knowing these requirements and understanding the inhabitants of a colony of honeybees, we can now progress to adapting these requirements in the form of easily managed cavities (hives and other equipment) and to moving the bees more in the direction of our own choosing (hive and apiary management).
These different sizes are in height only and they can be used for different purposes. Many beekeepers use just one size of box; others use the different sizes on one hive. Figure 6 shows the different parts of a hive. Hive stands Beehives should not be set directly on the ground. This is especially so if the floor (see below) is open mesh. The main reason is that damp will get into the hive, and this must not be allowed to happen. A hive stand, therefore, is anything that keeps the hive off the ground.
