The Beecentric Hive is modeled after the honeybees’ natural habitat; a hollow tree trunk. Originally inspired by the Warre hive, the apicentric hive is made of 8-frame Langstroth boxes. The number of frames in a box is important as the width of the hive should not exceed the width of the over-wintering cluster of bees. Narrower boxes are easier for the bees to heat and prevent winter starvation by encouraging the bees to access honey stores directly above them.
The Beecentric Hive is designed and handcrafted in Edmonton, Alberta for the conscientious beekeeper. Each beehive features strong finger joints and handles on all four sides and is constructed from solid pine. The beecentric hive is a hybrid between a commercial Langstroth and a Warre Hive.
