A Beecentric Hive Built for Bees and Shipped to Your Door
Prices above include the cost of shipping. Beecentric Hives are shipped partially unassembled with instructions and diagrams. Orders should be placed before March 1st to ensure early Spring arrival to anywhere in Canada and the United States.
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.
