Standard 10 Frames Wooden or Plastic Langstroth Beehive with various Layers
1. Introduction of Langstroth Beehive

Named for the inventor, Rev. Lorenzo Langstroth, Langstroth hives use standardized sizes of hive bodies and internal frames to ensure that parts are interchangeable and that the frames will remain relatively easy to remove, inspect, and replace without killing the bees.
Langstroth hive bodies are rectangular boxes without tops or bottoms placed one on top of another and can be made from a variety of materials that can be stacked to expand the usable space for the bees.
Inside the boxes, frames are hung parallel to each other. Langstroth frames are thin rectangular structures made of wood or plastic and typically have a wax or plastic foundation on which the bees draw out the comb. The frames hold the beeswax comb formed by the bees. Ten frames side by side will fill the hive body and leave the right amount of bee space between each frame and between the end frames and the hive body.
Langstroth frames are often reinforced with wire, making it possible to spin the honey out of the comb in a centrifuge. As a result, the empty frames and comb can be returned to the beehive for re-filling by the bees.

2. The modern Langstroth hive consists of the following parts:
Hive stand: the upper hive components rest on this, providing a landing board for the bees and helping to protect the bottom board from rot and cold transfer.
Bottom board: this has an entrance for the bees to get into the hive.
Brood box: the lowest box of the hive and where the queen bee lays her eggs.
Honey super: usually shorter than the brood box, but is the uppermost box, where honey is stored.
Frames: moveable wooden or plastic frames that hold foundation and comb.
Foundation: wax or plastic sheets held by frames with honeycomb impression onto which bees may build wax honey combs.
Inner cover: provides separation from an overly hot or cold outer cover and can be used as a shelf for feeding or other purposes.
Outer cover: provides weather protection for the hive.
