Poly National Hive Development

Well our polystyrene National hive is almost ready with the design, a few tweaks still to make but its looking good.   Totally compatible with your existing wooden hive parts, meaning nothing needs goes to waste when you start swapping over.    These poly hives will be much lighter to handle, extremely durable and very pleasing on the wallet.    Its also said that a poly hive will produce 25%-35% more honey than a wooden equivalent.

We are hoping to be ready for Aug/September.

Our Poly National Hive Is Almost Ready For Development

New Zealand Nucs Building Up

Well, after the packages arrived in, we set to work transferring the bees into the polystyrene nuc hives.     With some TLC they’ll soon draw out the new combs and establish themselves as a strong, healthy colony.

Even with the temperature drop over the last few days, the bees are still taking advantage of any breaks in the cloud to enjoy the warmth of the Spring Sun.
