Jones' Patent





Jones' dividing hive was probably suggested by this instinctive

principle of the bee, viz.: when a stock by any accident loses its

queen, and the combs contain eggs or very young larvae, they will rear

another. Now if a hive is constructed so as to divide the brood-combs,

it would seem quite certain that the half without a queen, would raise

one; and we could multiply our stocks without swarms, the trouble of

hiving, and risk of their going to the woods, &c.
