How to use "Hive" in context?

Hives are created when honey bees produce stored honey. The stored honey gets thick, dark, and tricky to extract. The hive is divided into sections called brood boxes and the bees store honey in these sections. Every queen in a hive needs a specific amount of honey for brood food.

When the honey is thick and difficult to extract, the bees start to make more honey in the brood boxes. This honey is called "brood comb honey." The bees use this comb honey to feed their young, and they also use it to store more honey. The more brood comb honey a hive has, the more honey the bees will produce.
