This hive is like our Advanced NW Hive, but uses 3 medium supers, rather than 2 deep brood boxes and one honey super. You can choose either 10-frame supers or 8-frame. It is made with premium wood and includes our screened bottom board, Vivaldi Board, curved telescoping lid, frames and an entrance reducer.
We offer this hive with standard frames and foundation, or with foundationless frames that include a waxed horizontal started strip under the top bar.
If you don't like lifting heavy boxes, this hive might be for you, and it is a bit less expensive, too. However, since the brood boxes are smaller, you might need to add an extra box if the colony becomes very large.
Having all boxes the same size can make management simpler as you expand your apiary. It also makes colony splits easier as the colony will fill each brood box faster, providing more boxes to split.
In-store pickup only, but shipping will be possible soon.
