British National 6 Frame Bee Hive with Standard Brood box.
These are made just like a full size National bee hive except they hold 6 frames. These have all the benefits and uses of a nucleus hive but extra components are available enabling the hive to be built up to a full colony if desired. With only half size boxes to lift, this half hive system appeals to those wishing to avoid weight lifting.
All components are fully assembled and complete.
All woodwork is knot free untreated solid timber - weather proofing wood treatment is recommended to keep hives dry.
Includes from the top down:
- Roof, Metal clad
- Crownboard with feeding and clearing holes
- Standard Deep Brood Box.
- Varroa Mesh Floor including 2 way entrance block and sliding inspection tray.
1 Dummy Board + 5 Hoffman self spacing frames, fully assembled, fitted with sheets of wired beeswax foundation and ready to use can be added.
