Langstroth hives are the standard rectangular hives that you would have seen everywhere. Nucleus colonies for these hives come on four full-depth frames with honey and brood, a few thousand bees, and new queen. Of course, the Langstroth and Flow Hive colonies are exactly the same. Listing them separately just helps me to keep track of how many of each we do.
It’s best to preorder the colonies, to be sure to get them, and to get them earlier in the season. The total cost is $220. When booking there is a $50 non-refundable deposit.
Only available from late October through December.
Pickup from shop only, as we’re not able to ship them.
Please note: We have reached our capacity to supply nucleus colonies for Langstroth and Flow Hives this season. There are, however, a limited number of colonies that I’ve set aside for those wishing to purchase a Complete Langstroth Hive. The deposit here is for the bees, as well as a new timber hive.
