    Default Okay need some help.

    I'm in the research stage of beekeeping. I plan on doing the DIY hives as I have access to all kinds of materials. That being said Is there a place I can find the name of the parts on the hive I've tried reading but without the pics I'm lost.

    Im not sure I understand your question right, but if you are looking for the names of the parts of a hive, just look at any beekeeping supply online store.

    You might also take a look at the beesource build-it-yourself area. It can be found in the left side column on the home page.

    No difference for most. Some people run all medium equipment though. I run all deeps and call the bottom two boxes brood boxes, and everything else supers even though they are the same size.
