Our 5 Frame 1/2 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 half the width. This means they can be used as separate nucleus hives but can also be used on a full size hive. 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
