A Beecentric Hive Built for Bees
The Beecentric Hive is modelled after the honeybees’ natural habitat a hollow tree trunk. Inspired by the Warre Hive, the Beecentric Hive is modified to use 8-frame Langstroth boxes and standard frames. Narrower hives are more comfortable to manipulate, easier for the bees to regulate, and prevents winter starvation by stacking honey directly above the colony.
Each Beecentric Hive is built from solid pine, features strong finger joints and consists of one screened IPM bottom-board, three 8-frame medium boxes, one Warre style quilt-box, one vented roof, and two entrances with reducers. Boxes fit standard medium langstroth frames available at any bee supply store.
Hives should be ordered before January 1st to ensure spring pickup in Edmonton. Unpaid balances are cleared up at pickup.
