Bee space

What is Bee space?

  1. 3/8-inch space between combs and hive parts in which bees build no comb or deposit only a small amount of propolis. Bee spaces are used as corridors to move within the hive.
  2. The critical measurement between parts of a hive that enables bees to move freely about the hive. The space measures 3 /8 inch (1 cm).
Burr comb (basically rouge comb) occurs because bees are incredibly precise and picky about the distance between things in their hive. “Bee space” is the amount of space they will allow in a hive so they can move between combs and work back to back on cells.
