Langstroth hives are the standard rectangular beehives you see everywhere. We assemble and paint all of the hives here. They’re made of plantation grown radiata pine; the timber is 22 mm thick. Frames are handmade, with stainless steel wire, brass eyelets, and beeswax foundation.

In addition to the bees, the Langstroth hive package includes:

  1. Two 8-frame timber boxes, fully assembled, and painted, $75 each
  2. Timber lid, with Colourbond metal cover, $70
  3. Timber base, cleats and risers, $65
  4. Handmade timber frames with beeswax foundation (16), $11 each
  5. Metal queen excluder, $23
  6. Aerofast hive lock, $22

The cost of the hive is $506, and a 4-frame colony of bees, normally $240, is only $190 with the hive package. Total for both hive and bees is $696. The package can be booked with a $50 deposit. When you come to collect your bees they will already be in their new hive.
