Stapling a Warre hive


#1

I’ve never had to staple a hive before but now I must move a Warre so would like to make sure it doesn’t disassemble in transit. I see that Bee Thinking sells hive staples. What style/size of staple gun would I need to use these hive staples? Is it relatively easy to do? Thanks!

Judith,

Good question! The staples are large enough that you would use a hammer to attach them. I like to attach them diagonally across the two boxes I’m stapling together. The reason for this is so that the boxes can’t shift. If the staple was attached straight up and down, the boxes could shift back and forth!

Best,

Matt
