Is it on the North-South axis, the East-West axis or some other orientation?

I've usually observed wild Indian Bees (Apis cerana) orient their hives in an East-West direction. The entrances are usually oriented towards the Sun.

This is purely from my own observation (in South India) and not from any research.

So are the combs parallel or perpendicular to the E-W axis ? –  user2534 Feb 20 at 14:59
