Advantages of the Warre Hive:
- Simple system
- Allows bees to do what they do naturally
- Bees build from the top down
- Bees adjust the size of the comb according to their own requirements
- Easier for bees to keep warm during winter
- Fewer problems with disease, mites, and varmints
- Good ventilation
- Is much like a tree
- Bees like trees
- Low cost
- Low maintenance, “hands-off” philosophy
- Lets the bees be bees and follow their natural instincts.
