Correct Size Between Two Extremes

Between the two extremes, like most other cases, is found the correct

place. A hive twelve inches square, each way, inside, has been

recommended as the correct size. Here are 1,728 cubic inches. This, I

think, is sufficient for many places, as the queen probably has all the

room necessary for depositing her eggs; and as the swarms are more

numerous, and nearly as large as from hives much larger; also, there is

room for honey sufficient to carry the bees through the winter, at

least, in many sections south of 40 degrees latitude, where the winter

is somewhat short.
