This may be an economy model, but it has all of the quality details and thoughtful design of the rest of the Bee Built lineup! The solid construction will keep these boxes in use for years, unlike Langstroth boxes purchased from other retailers. The stylishly curved roof piece made with their leak proof composite paneling will let the rain run off, and keep the bees dry and protected. The viewing window is one of my favorite aspects of Bee Built hives and I am glad they included it in this model. This is the perfect hive to start or grow your apiary with!
