The Classic Hive. The hive that evokes memories of childhood as to what a beehive should look like, especially when painted white. The double wall offers greater protection against the weather but it can have its drawbacks. Ensure when siting any hive, but especially the WBC that you select a southerly aspect to gain the full benefits of the sun for as long as possible. Remember if the WBC is warmer in winter it can also be cooler in summer, thus bees can be late venturing out on a warm day and with such fickle weather we need to take as much advantage of the sun as possible.
