    Beehive Kit

    Very good service, One or two cuts on one of the boxes was a little off, the box rocked slightly but I fixed it myself.

    Medium Hive Starter Kit

    I was disappointed not having the instructions included in the package. But I was happy with the kit and looking forward to the spring to set it up.
