We build our own Lazutin Hives. These are stationary, natural beekeeping, horizontal, extra deep hives. They are 4 inches thick with insulation, a frame, siding and a roof of corrugated metal. They are painted mild pastel colors with contrasting designs so the bees can identify their home. The lighter colors are used because the bees aren't too fond of darker hues. These hives are located in Anna, TX at Luscombe Farms. Additional hives are being added in Randolph, TX.
Clean water is supplied to the bees by ponds and supplemented, if necessary, with a rain water catch watering system. We seed bomb the fields with pollinator nectar flower seeds and the fields bloom with assorted native wildflowers.
