This limited edition Douglas Fir Top Bar Hive has multiple improvements for 2024. 

  • Includes exclusive premium aluminum composite roof which can be reversed from dark copper color to white depending on the season. Extremely durable and water proof-a great improvement over wooden roof material which always rots and eventually leaks over time
  • The redesigned double-window viewing wall results in much less warping of the window cover (which bees don't like because is allows light in) which often occurs in other designs with long window walls
  • The redesigned base is made with more solid components which improves strength and decreases vulnerability to water infiltration and rot
  • All hardware (screened bottom, and all fasteners) is stainless steel
  • Comes with 28 milled single-body top bars
  • Comes with pre-assembled base and window wall making your assembly much faster, easier, and hassle-free.

Top Bar Hives are great for home bee keeping since with these hives you are normally only moving single bars of single bars of honeycomb (at the most 7 lbs), versus the heavy boxes of the Langstroth and Warre hives (up to 60 lbs).

Top Bar Hives are also great as you can move the following board as the hive grows, and don't have to keep adding more boxes as you do with Langstroth and Warre hives

Our Douglas Fir Top Bar Hives are made from responsibly harvested wood. Douglas Fir is naturally resistant to warping, shrinking, and cracking. This lumber is great for outdoor applications, and looks great with an application of tung oil. Douglas Fir is among the heaviest and hardest softwoods.

    INCLUDES:

    • Sustainable Douglas Fir walls bases and legs
    • Moulded legs that can easily be leveled and support 300+ lbs
    • Exclusive composite aluminum reversible roofs 
    • Exceptionally strong CNC-cut ends with ventilation
    • Oval side & end entrances cut to the same size as standard Warre entrances with Black Walnut covers
    • 28 x 19" Douglas Fir top bars
    • 40" long hive body (all parts pre-drilled and base and windows pre-assembled)
    • 45" long hinged roof with composite aluminum roofing for longest life and maximal water-proofing
    • 2 viewing windows let you see the bees in action, but don't warp and split like single-window hive walls
    • Screened bottom board with stainless steel screen
    • Bottom board also has integrated slots to slide in provided boards to convert the bottom into a solid bottom
    • Stainless steel screws, screens, and other fasteners
    • Assembly diagram and instructions


    TOOLS REQUIRED

    • Drill with Phillips bit (not provided)
    • Screened bottom and the Window Wall come pre-assembled to make assembly fast and easy
    • Approximate assembly time: 30 minutes
