Our 6 Frame Hives have all the same features and specifications as a full size National hive but are designed to be used independently. They can be used as nucleus hives but can also be built up into a full colony. This provides an alternative way of keeping bees, ideal for those avoiding excessive weight lifting. Bee hives for DIY require some D.I.Y. and bee hive making experience. Instructions, D.I.Y. materials and fixings such as nails, glue, wood oil and hive clips are not included but are available in the Bee Hive Hardware category
