    We are? I thought the thread was about which direction bees prefer to move. Nothing has been said so far that it's only about the "nest". Whatever you mean by nest I'm not sure either.

    Anything I've said so far, has been about the colony generally.

    The super, would go on top right? It's vertical.

    IE. To increase productivity, they are going vertical. Very amusing.

    Found this page which has a montage of Russian beekeeping pics. Also has one on Romanian beekeeping, US beekeeping, and New Zealand beekeeping (by indigenous people)

    Amusing pictures. I like Cameroon - looks like extreme business. Also, did you notice in Mexican series - they used 30o tilted bee-logs very similar to Russian, just much smaller - I am wondering what is the connection? It looks like, bees could live in many different shapes, conditions! Amusing creatures! Many thanks for sharing.

    Yes I think the Mexicans are using hives like that because they suit the type of bee they are using, a native South American bee.

    Well maybe, although most of the Russian hives in those pics were vertical hives that would have supers added. Even the "long" ones were not very long, not like what an American would typically call long, and they also looked like they may well have supers added if required. However if using strains similar to the "Russian" bees imported to the US, a small hive may work well although I doubt all the bees would be like that.
