  • Made from SFI certified sustainable red cedar.
  • Infinite possibilities for hive management. This is a great hive that you can't buy anywhere else.
  • There is no need to paint anything (painted hives trap moisture), but you may want to finish the exterior with Tung oil.
  • Tops of handles are mitered at 10 degrees to promote water run-off.
  • The hive bodies are exactly the same as those of the Warré hive, except that the rebates have metal frame rests installed on them for easier frame removal and to prevent damage to parts from propolis adhesion.
  • Please read this before purchasing a hive with viewing windows.
  • If you wish to assemble the hive yourself, click here for assembly instructions.
  • 16 quality frames have wedge top bars and grooved bottom bars. Assemble them yourself or have us assemble them for you. If you choose to assemble the frames yourself, we will provide frame nails. Don't forget your brad driver. Need help? Watch the video!
  • Replacement frames are available.
  • Cedar sawdust quilt filler material is included.
  • Foundation is not included. Hive can be set up with or without foundation. Foundation will prevent cross-combing and is recommended, especially for new beekeepers! If you want to do foundationless beekeeping, you can simply turn each frame's wedge cleat on its side, fasten it in place with the included brads in order to create a comb guide, and then coat each guide with beeswax to encourage the bees to follow them. You may also choose to wire your frames
  • Fiberglass screen is provided to separate the quilt and top hive body, helping to minimize the propolizing of the natural canvas duck quilt bottom.
  • Your choice of screened or solid floor. To view floor details, please click here.
  • Comes with two hive bodies. Is easily expanded by adding more hive bodies.
  • Available accessories include a sticky board, hivetop feeder, bee escape board and more!
