A complete kit to start your bee keeping.

Made from quality western red cedar, a light, tough and aesthetically pleasing timber ideally suited to the British climate, it is a very durable timber with natural resistance to moisture, decay and insect damage.

Although more expensive than ply or pine hives we have found through our own experience and many conversations with our customers that Cedar hives are well worth the extra investment.

Long lasting and a pleasure to use, Cedar hives are much lighter than other timbers and require less treatment to preserve, the cedar will weather to a silvery grey colour if left untreated over a period of time, but is also receptive to most stains/colours if preferred.

Our hives are made from traditional western red cedar, not to be confused with the cheaper white cedar hives now on the market which are of inferior quality, being much softer and having a wider grain. (beware many suppliers do not state which cedar is being used).

Includes:

  • Hive
  • Queen Excluder
  • Hoffman Brood Frames
  • Gimp Pins - 100g Thin Black Pins
  • Wired Foundation - (Brood)
  • J Type Steel Hive Tool - 250mm (10")
  • Stainless Steel Smoker - With Cage & Front Hook
  • Full Polycotton Beesuit (choose Fencing Veil or Round Hood)
  • Soft Leather Gloves
