Our Short Hive is for a single colony with a single entrance that can be placed at either end. The hive is made up of 23 frames with a queen excluder separating the brood from the super or honey stores.

These hives can be made in a few different 'frame' sizes, the most popular in the UK is the National, 75% of beekeepers here in the UK use this frame size. Unlike normal 'stacked' hives that use 2 frame (brood & super) sizes,  we use just one (brood) throughout our 'horizontal' hive.
