Our 3 Frame 1/3 Hives have all the same features and specifications as a full size National hive and are designed so they can be used in conjunction with them i.e. they are exactly a third the width. This means they can be used as separate nucleus hives but can also be used on a full size hive. They are designed so queen mating nucleus colonies can easily be made with a minimum of bees.

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
