New Top Bar hives


#1

Matt

I just saw a photo of your next prototype top bar hive on your Facebook page. What are the new features? I read about the new stand, and its movability, what other changes have been made? (looks like some changes in the entrance holes and is the roof the same?)

Brian,

The changes include:

Quality of lumber has increased dramatically

roof hinges have been changed to make it far easier to add/remove the roof

stand has been totally redesigned to improve stability, as well as make it easy to add/remove the hive body (this makes it a lot easier to transport the hive)

entrances have been changed from cork holes to bung holes

we now offer the hive with an unassembled hive body (the roof is still assembled) to reduce overall costs and shipping

Best,

Matt
