In al things bees, I try to imagine a feral hive.

No one feeds a swarm when they move into a new hive. No one provides them drawn comb. No one tells them which direction to draw comb, nor what the right size for their opening is. No one tells them where their tree (or whatever structure) should be in relation to whatever crops may (or may NOT) bloom in the coming months.

I think we often try to overcome a LOT of variables that the bees either don't bother with, or instinctively know what to do with. Perhaps that's why there are SO MANY "correct" beeks out there, eh? No matter what we throw at them, the bees are able to make it work for them. Pretty awesome, are our little ladies o' the hive!!
