  • Made from SFI certified sustainable red cedar.
  • Not a kit! This hive comes assembled; exactly as is shown. You need only to add the cedar sawdust to the quilt box, install the comb guides into the grooves of the top bars and coat them with wax, and then install the top bars into the hive bodies using the provided brads. Easy to follow instructions are included. We do not offer this hive not assembled.
  • There is no need to paint anything (painted hives trap moisture), but you may want to finish the exterior with Tung oil.
  • This hive closely simulates a tree cavity; the most common natural environment for a bee colony. Nearly cylindrical design helps bees stay warm and dry.
  • The very best hive available to over-winter bees.
  • Tops of handles are mitered at 10 degrees to promote water run-off.
  • Exterior surfaces of the hive bodies and roof are sanded smooth.
  • Fiberglass screen is provided to separate the quilt and top hive body to help minimize 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!
  • Replacement top bars are available.
  • Cedar sawdust quilt filler material is included.
