Poly open mesh floor with entrance block.

FEATURES

LIGHTWEIGHT AND DURABLE
Each hive component is made from a very high density material, 120g/litre - up to 4 times stronger than the poly used for packaging.    This gives the hives great durability, able to withstand hive tools and the usual beehive inspections.    It's lightweight properties will mean it is easier to handle too - great for those bad backs!

SUPER INSULATED
Its insulation properties also makes it ideal for beehives as less bees are required to maintain the heat required for effective brood rearing, helps improve overwintering successes and giving you an earlier spring buildup.

ALREADY BUILT
No faffing around with this hive.   Each component is one piece moulded so there are no weak joints and very minimal assembly needed before you add your bees.   Just  give your hive a lick of paint and you are ready to go!

COMPATIBILITY
Ideally, you'll want your hive to be all poly to get maximum benefits from it.  But no need to chuck away your wooden parts.      You can use those parts on the poly hive, whether that's a wooden brood box, wooden super, or any other wooden item.   The only limitation is you can't use a wooden roof over the top of a poly box.

WHAT YOU GET.......

Poly open mesh floor with entrance block.

More and more beekeepers are convinced that the use of this type of floor is beneficial to the colony. 

Advantages:

Improved wintering - water vapour escapes easily through the floor - no need for top ventilation which wastes the colony's heat
No need for extra screens when moving bees
Reduction of varroa populations - mites which fall through the screen do not climb back up. 
Easy monitoring of mite populations - simply slide in the plastic drawer under the screen when required. Can be left on all year round. National size only.

All our Poly Hives are made in the UK
