Nucleus Hive Polystyrene

Nucleus Hive Polystyrene

Our Polystyrene Nucleus Hives are available as a complete hive or additional individual parts.

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 do not require runners as they are built into the mould.  

Compatible with wooden national frames and accessories.  hives can be cleaned with soda crystals.
