    Default Alternate Hive Shapes

    Anyone using Stewarton Octagonal Hives, Warre Hives, Round Hives, or Dodecahedron Hives?

    Looking for photos or plans of alternate hive designs.

    I have a Warré, into which I have just introduced a swarm. They seem to be doing the right things.

    Plans for hTBH and Warré on my site... and lots of pictures!

    I'm working on cube hives, no conclusions or pictures yet.
