National Polystyrene Hive

National Polystyrene Hive

Our Polystyrene hive parts are available as a complete hive or in individual parts.  Available as flat packed or fully assembled.  We pride ourselves in providing our flat packed hives with detailed instructions and complete fixing packs, we even add a tea bag to encourage you to read the instructions before assembling!  Of course, if you have any queries we are here to help.

Our polystyrene hives are made in the UK and are of a high-density 100g/litre construction, being up to 3 times stronger than polystyrene packaging.  We recommend they are painted with smooth masonry paint to provide a very long lasting hive.

Polystyrene provides a lightweight, cheap and durable hive with excellent insulation properties to help keep the bees warm through the winter. The brood and supers have dovetailed joints for easy assembly and do not require runners as they are built into the mould.  

Compatible with wooden national hive parts, frames, and accessories (a wooden roof cannot be used).  Polystyrene hives can be cleaned with soda crystals.
