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.

Frames sizes: National (DN4), Langstroth, 14x12

Included:

  • The hive is fully assembled
  • 2 x Clear crown boards

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.

You can purchase queen exluders here

Happy Customer

Impressed with the design and workmanship of the short hive. A few small shakes and chips on two of the legs, which I easily sorted and would have appreciated on ordering a ‘heads up’ that I needed to ask for my pine hive to be oiled before delivery. But these small points apart I’m very pleased with the hiveand friendly service.

My favorite new hive!

Looks amazing and well built. Bees installed yesterday, can’t wait to see how they settle in!
Loving the clear pvc top boards and way less lifting! Inspections are so much less intrusive. This is my first but I am sure not my last!

Short Hive

Hive arrived on a wet Sunday! Heavy piece of timber and solidly made. Now comes with entrance at either end. Really pleased with it.
