2022 Short Hive
Our Short Hive is for a single colony with a single entrance. The hive is made up of 20 frames with a queen excluder separating the brood from the super or honey stores.
Our hives are made in a few different frame sizes, the most popular in the UK is the BS National (British Standard)
Frames sizes: National (DN4), Langstroth, 14x12
- The hive is fully assembled
- 2 x Clear crown boards
1 x Clearer board
Please note: Queen excluders are not included and after much research and customer feedback, we realise they are not needed in our short hives. But obviously, if you would like to run your hive with a queen excluder (as lots of beeks do) they are available to purchase below.
