A complete Langstroth hive consisting of all medium size hive bodies:
- 4 Medium hive bodies
- Queen excluder
- Floor and aluminium varroa mesh
- Varroa tray
- Hive strap
- Inner cover
- Entrance reducer
An inner plastic cover and entrance reducer is provided with all our standard hives. Although not essential (a sheet of polythene can be used under the roof and the entrance reduced with a strip of sponge) or bit of wood) they make beekeeping with these hives a lot easier. The entrance reducer also doubles as an entrance closer which is very useful if the hive needs to be moved.
Running your bees on medium depth frames gives the benefits of having the same depth frames throughout the hive plus significantly lighter loads to lift. This hive is designed to be run with the lower two hive bodies containing the brood and then two more medium depth hive bodies above a queen excluder used as supers for the honey crop.
See the Poly Hive use page for advice on how to introduce bees on full depth frames to the Langstroth hive. These instructions also cover subsequent management of the colony and their transformation to a complete colony on medium frames. No more bad backs!
