Hives are made from high quality kiln-dried spruce and assembled with non-toxic water resistant glue and screw fasteners.  Superior craftsmanship with machined joints.  Arrives sanded and ready for paint.

Hives are of the standard 20 frames design (also available in 7 and 30 frame sizes) with a removable queen excluder between upper and lower sets of frames.  Includes internal feeder made of pine and water resistant MDF.  Small screened entrance eliminates chances of drowning bees.  Hives also included integrate varroa screen bottoms with slide out tray.

Upper and lower front entrances with entrance reducer and block.   Lower entrance has hinged landing board that allows for easy closing and has screened hole to provide ventilation when closed.

Rear door has upper and lower hinged sections that allow for adjustment of ventilation.   Door easily lifts off hinges for removal and allows for complete ventilation while moving hive.

Does not include foundation for frames.  Standard deep Langstroth foundation (plastic or wax) can be cut to fit frames and leaves about 1″ gap at bottom for bees to fill with comb size of their choice.  Or start guides can be added to top of frames for foundationless set-up.

Just paint, add foundation and bees.

We have depleted our stock of materials needed to build bee vacs. Due to Covid-19 we are having difficulty procuring additional materials from our suppliers and are pursing alternate sources. Currently we have no estimate of when bee vacs will be back in stock.
