These are no ordinary beehives but made from red cedar timber which is an anti-decay material due to a chemical substance which is found in cedar timber. It serves as a natural fungicide thereby preventing the wood from rotting which is still prevalent in the timber decades after it has been cut.
Made from locally sourced Thuja Plicata (red cedar) timber from County Clare, to withstand every climate.
All boxes are hand-crafted, screwed and glued together.
All hives have integrated mesh floors for ventilation and easy verroa inspection.
Heavy duty stainless steel roof with half inch ply meaning no stone needed to keep this roof down.
All hives are fully assembled and ready to be stocked with bees.
All hives are double coated with Liberon oil for full weather resistance.
