The basic nest construction for all honeybees is comparable the honey of the bees is stored in the upper part of the comb. Underneath it are rows of pollen storage cells, worker-brood cells, and drone-brood cells, in that order. The peanut shaped queen cells are usually built at the lower edge of the comb of honey.

Ancient House:

The honey Bees were kept in the past by man made hives in Egypt in ancient times. The walls of the Egyptian wall temple of the Nyuserre Lni from the 5th Dynasty, dated earlier than the 2422 Before Crist, depict workers blowing smoke into hives in this way they remove Bees were kept in man-made hives in Egypt in ancient times.

Because of no internal structures were provide for the honey bees nest, they generate their own honeycomb within the hives. The comb is this type of hive that it often cross attache and cannot be move without abolishing it. This is sometimes called a “fixed-frame” hive to distinguish it from the modern “movable-frame” hives.

Commercial hives:

It has the same cross sectional proportions as a National hive but deeper brood box and supers. The inside structure of the boxes is also really very simpler, resulting in wider frames with shorter handles or lugs. The brood box is pick up using small hand holds cut into the exterior wall of the hive. Supers have this same feature, which some find difficult to use when the super is full of honey. Some beekeepers therefore use National supers on the top of a Commercial brood box.
