5 Amazing Natural Beehives

November 18, 2017

If you are a commercial or a backyard beekeeper, you're familiar with standard frames that allow honeybees to expand and grow their hive in a structured and cohesive manner. 


While this is great for beekeepers and allows them to easily extract honey from the hive, it isn't always what would have happened in the wild...


Check out these Five Amazing Natural Beehives below and then try to figure out just how you would extract the honey from each! 



A beehive that was discovered in a log, layered top to bottom instead of side to side - it's a wonder what honeybees can do with a cylinder-shaped home.

The original source of this last natural, wild honeycomb we couldn't track down, however it's amazing structure, size and complexity was too intense for us to over look!

Oh, imagine the amazing varietal flavors of each! Have any pictures of natural, local beehives that you have found? Feel free to email them to for a chance to be featured!


*Honeybees are naturally docile, however please exercise caution when approaching natural beehives.
