There are various types of beekeeping, including the apis dorsata (bees are bred out of the forest), apis cerana (locally bred bees), and apis mellifera (superior bee seeds). You should choose apis mellifera whose demand is much higher than other types. This type, apis mellifera, is generally much more productive than apis cerana, and bees that used are also far more benign. In addition, the venom on apis mellifera’s stings can be used to cure a variety of diseases. You should choose apis mellifera whose demand is much higher than other types.

This article would like to help you with some tips in making your own backyard beehive. When you plan a business like beekeeping, you have to prepare everything and put them at the right place. Therefore, there will be so many things to do before you start selling honey in a jar. Let us start with some points:
1) Preparing materials
Here is the list of materials needed:
  • One piece of wood measuring 2 “x 12″ x 6′ (cut the wood into two pieces for the sides, each measuring 22-inch)
  • One piece of wood measuring 2 “x 12″ x 6′ (cut the wood into two pieces for the front and rear, each measuring 18-inch)
  • One piece of wood measuring 1 “x 1″ x 6′ (cut the wood into two pieces, each for the right sides and top frame, measuring 22-inch)
  • One piece of wood measuring 1 “x 1″ x 6′ (cut the wood into two pieces for the back and top frame, measuring 18-inch)
  • A thick piece of plywood measuring 16 “X 20″
  • A piece (bottom) of Beekeeping Beehives Natural Starter Kit (you can find it at Amazon)
  • 12 large jars
  • One box for wood screws (each screw measuring 1 “)
  • A can of wood stain
2) Make your own beehive in a jar
After completing all the materials needed, now you can start making your own beehive.
  • First of all you need to put a thick piece of plywood measuring 16 x 20 inches. Measure the wood and make 12 holes using a hole saw on the surface of the wood. Each hole measuring 3 1/2 inch.
  • Next, use two pieces of wood measuring 22 inch and 18 inch (taken from boards measuring 2 “x 12″ x 6 ‘).
  • Get two pieces of measuring 22 inch and 18 inch (taken from boards measuring 1 “x 1″ x 6′)
  • Combine them (these pieces of 1 “x 1″ x 6′ and 2 “x 12″ x 6′, as well as that plywood) using screws and polish with dark wood stain.
  • Take 12 half-gallon-sized jars, and then put them in a sequence in the hole that you created. Make sure each jar fit in the hole.
  • Use Beekeeping Beehives Natural Starter Kit, and put this at the bottom of the nest box that you created. It serves as the entrance for the bees.
  • You might be able to add some shims to support the weight of the nest box.
