These are currently in production and will be available for pick-up by the 1st of March.
If you ordered bees and wish to pick up your equipment at the same time, we can also hold your hive kits for when you come for the packages or nucs.
(some shipping is possible to IA, NE, SD, ND, MN, IL & WI. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a price quote)
Hand-made pine hive kits at a price for less than what commercial producers sell them for! These same kits are $100 more through the majority of commercial sales places. We use a combination of outdoor woodglue and oversized deep staples on every finger of the joint for a tight, strong, long lasting hive box! Our frames are Acorn brand, one of the best frame producers with quality wax coatings. And when you buy from us, you are talking to the people who actually made the product. Not a middle person who shrugs their shoulders and tells you to contact the manufacturer.
We are still a fairly small local business, and thus we do run out of pre-made inventory during high demand times. If you are also ordering packages or nucs in late winter, you can request to have us hold your kits so that you only have to make a single trip to pick everything up.
Contents of the kit:
2 pine deeps
2 pine mediums
1 internal division board feeder (with cap and ladders)
1 inner cover
1 telescoping cover
1 entrance reducer
1 solid bottom board
20 deep wax coated frames
20 medium wax coated frames
We have the ability to do custom engraving with our CNC machine. Please contact us wth your ideas for an estimate (Russianbeeguy@gmail.com). Just to get an idea of cost; engraving the front of a deep hive box would probably run $75 to $100 depending on depth and complexity of your custom design. If you have your own art, please submit it as a 300 dpi jpg grey scale file at the size you are thinking of wanting it. Submitting your own art as close to the finished product you actually want will save you on design time and make your custom box much more affordable, but we can also design things up from scratch based on an idea you have.
