The building of a nest by honeybees involves both the construction of cells and the regulation of the space between combs, separate but related problems. The space between combs, effected by the bees themselves, is the very fundament of practical beekeeping. The realisation of the importance of this space is contained in the correspondence of Langstroth (Naile 1942), but is nowhere explicit in his laborious account of its management (Langstroth 1853).
