My Christmas present to myself this year is a six super hybrid beehive. A month in the making, it is named Hex for its hexagon shape, Plex for combining practical Langstroth features with the simplicity of Warre topbar features, and named Pagoda for its appearance, that brings in spiritual and cosmic energy. Each box holds seven regular medium depth Langstroth frames. The three different length outer combs on each side have Warre type fixed top bars and fixed bottom bars that are not a removable frame. The fixed bottom bars are to minimize comb attachment to the frames below. The hive includes a solid bottom board, a slatted rack, queen excluder, division screen, quilt box with luann cover, a stand and a roof. The quilt box differs from a Warre quilt box as it has a beespace below the 1/8” galvanized screen bottom. It is reinforced so that it can be used to hold feeder jars. The division screen will allow it to be run as a two queen hive. It is set it up as a double bait hive at its permanent home outside my living room window. I feel the aura that it exudes will make the Hex Plex Pagoda very attractive to local swarms looking for an unusual home.
