A Beehive is an enclosed, man-made structure in which some honey bees live and raise their young and excrete their waste otherwise known as honey which is later extracted. Beehives serve several purposes such as:

- trying to mitigate the effects of colony collapse disorder, etc.
Hives are commonly transported so that bees can pollinate crops in other areas. Several patents have been issued for beehive designs.
