The Warre' hive is built to resemble as closely as possible a bee's natural home. In nature, honeybees live in the trunks of old trees. The Warre' hive is built with a series of square boxes with top bars on each box for the bees to suspend comb from. The top has a quilt box to provide added insulation and then the roof. The entrance is at the bottom of the hive and the bees are left to build their own comb in each of the boxes.
