Description

and to be honest the 14 x 12 box is usually big enough to take even the biggest colony and the most fecund of queens- by the time they have got to full size you have supers on anyway and they have the extra space they need .

Frames for illustration purposes only and are not included, please note these boxes are not supplied with bees. Top bars are 7/8 wide, Hoffman self spacing sidebars are 1 3/8 wide at top tapering to 1 1/16 at the bottom.The pent roof makes the unit blend into the garden while giving you full headroom throughout the complete shed.

Please note timber is a natural product and prone to changes in appearance, including some movement, warping and splitting, particularly in extreme weather conditions. However you will probably see that after a few days the queen is just wandering around on the queen excluder and not doing much - and she could be ignored and get cold. I’ve had a few courier issues with damaged items - yet Abelo have always sorted them promptly and to my satisfaction every time. Your shed must be treated within 6 months of purchase and then every 6 to 12 months to activate your 10 year anti rot guarantee and protect your shed from the weather also ensuring it's watertight.

We work very closing with the NBU (National Bee Unit) and APHA (Animal and Plant Agency) to guarantee you disease free bees that are a pleasure to handle. A tip would be to feed to help them draw out the foundation with a rapid feeder, miller feeder, contact feeder, frame feeder, what ever you like. We have also made the roof 100% thicker than competitor’s allowing the highest point of heat loss to be vastly reduced.

You can use those parts on the poly hive, whether that's a wooden brood box, wooden super, or any other wooden item.Yes, put the 14 x 12 box on top of the National brood box (no queen excluder) and feed to encourage the bees to draw out the foundation. There was a long piece in a BBKA magazine 2 or 3 years ago extolling the virtues of brood and a half. Bees will generally build comb where you don't want it - under the deep frames - and you still have to get rid of them at some time which is why I would prefer to get the job done early as a Baily comb exchange rather than have shallower frames in the hive for some time.
