The log hive has been used for many years, and is considered a more natural style hive.

This log hive is easy to make. All you need is a chainsaw and chisel.

According to Gaia bees, "Log hives provide a natural nest environment and allow bees to grow their one-body [hive] according to their instincts and inner wisdom. Frameless nest environments support health and emotional well being."
