You can make homemade beehives using plywood. You’ll need several pieces of plywood to frame all sides together. Nail all this together leaving each end open. On one end you need about an inch of space between another piece of plyboard & the box you’ve just made. For the top of the box you need to make a lid that can be opened/closed. You now have a bee box for the bees to enter & beginning making it’s hive.
