Our new polystyrene Nucleus Hive will hold 6 BS brood frames, for National and WBC hives, and comes complete with a built in Feeder. It has an open mesh floor to help with varroa control and to help with ventilation during transit. Comes with 4 feet to keep the hive off the ground, wooden float for the feeder, a disc entrance for easier control of the entrance and a clear coverboard for easy viewing without completely opening up the hive.
Polystyrene is a great material for beehives:
It's made from a very high density material, 100g/litre - up to 3 times stronger than the material used for packaging.
It's lightweight and durable.
Its insulation properties also makes it especially suitable for nucs and small colonies as fewer bees are required to maintain the heat required for effective brood rearing.
Comes in a Light Green colour. (Does not include frames)
We are passionate about looking after the environment and looking after bees. For every complete hive that we sell, we will plant 1 trees and help with carbon reduction. Check out how we are doing here.
