A few months ago when I decided to get bees this spring I had to decide between langstroth and long hives. I thought what if I combined the two so that I could be able to add and subtract hive space as needed while also not having to lift off upper hive bodies during inspection. My question is: has anyone ever tried making one of the sides of their hive removable or putting it on a hinge so that you could just open it and pull out your frames? As someone who doesn’t have bees yet I don’t know if there is some reason why not to do this but it seemed to obvious to me. If I have come up with a new product that will make millions then great lol.
