Apimaye 7 Frame Hive Set up


4 in stock

This food grade, UV resistant plastic (HDPE) has double layer insulation to keep your bees cooler in the summer and warm all winter long, no matter where you live. This also reduces summer bearding and winter food consumption making for happier, healthier, and more productive bees. Double layer insulation also helps your nucs survive winter even if it gets cold.
Holds 7 standard deep frames (not included) when used as a single hive. Can be split into two 3 frame nucs using the provided division board.
Some beekeepers will use this a a whole hive (such as Langstroth 8 frame hives) instead of a nuc box. Can accept wood boxes on top that can be special ordered.

  • Screened bottom board with debris tray and ventilation slots (bottom board is attached to box) entrance with built in mouse guard and 2 separate reducers for hives that are divided
  • 1 Deep Box (standard Langstroth Size) with metal handles that lay flat when not in use, metal latch to connect boxes or lids for added stability, 2 ventilation/acess ports for extra entrance or to allow moisture to escape the hive
  • 1 Division board with ventilation, access, or closed off disks
  • 2 hive top feeders / inner covers with access to each one separately for allowing divided hives to access the food without contacting each other. Can be used for either syrup or candy depending on which way you turn the access port. Each feeder holds 1/2 gallon syrup
