NATIONAL HIVE-

The most widely used hive in the UK, and as such gives the beekeeper quite a range of variations in the hive make up.  Available is a choice of, Open mesh Floors (for varroa control) or the standard solid floor, shallow or deep square roof, or if you prefer the look of the gabled roof of the WBC, a gabled roof is available for the National, which also accommodates a rapid feeder inside the roof space. For those Beekeepers wishing a bigger brood area a 14 x 12 brood body is also available.

 Hive is available in both Cedar and Budget wood


NATIONAL POLYSTYRENE HIVE

Polystyrene is the newest material for bee hives,  the polystyrene used is a much higher density than “packing polystyrene”, making it a lightweight and durable alternative to wood. Many beekeepers like the insulation properties of it, enabling smaller colonies to survive better. Queens are happy to lay right out to the side wall. Unlike a wooden National hive it only accommodates 10 National frames. The hive benefits from painting on the outside, and new style has improved frame rest which allows space for the bees to pass underneath the frame lugs.

 Jumbo brood chamber, takes 14 x 12 BS frames and increase the brood area for larger colonies.
