Re: What Defines a Langstroth Hive?
It doesn't really matter what we think. The Langstroth Hive is a ten-frame, removable frame hive of the dimensions established by Langstroth. The interior consists of rectangular, suspended, moveable frames that established the bee space we're familiar with. The boxes are of a uniform size (length and width) capable of being stacked one upon another. Variations enter in with extracting supers of Illinois, Medium, or Shallow depth. cf: The Hive and the Honey Bee and The ABC and XYZ of Bee Culture.
