Hyde hives are a very easy company to deal with. The hive is very well built and will suit its purpose just fine, although I don’t have bees in it just yet. Delivery was prompt and the driver courteous and helpful. Couldn’t ask for more really.


A truly outstanding piece of beekeeping kit.

Looking forward to testing this out this season. Quality of the hive materials and craftsmanship excellent. I particularly like the ability to move the division boards to unite colonies , or increase space for growing nuclei. I have a slight reservation about the slightly large gap between the closed floor tray and wall of the hive - though ventilation is important, insulation is scientifically proven to be critical , and in a windy exposed site like mine , I may need to make some adjustments to reduce this gap.

Queen Rearing Hive

This is my third purchase from Dean & Matt at Hyde Hives and I'm not dissapointed at all. Their long hives are great quality and solidly made with attention to detail. I've currently got 4 Nucs rehoused in it and love the fact that you can take the partitions out if your nucs are getting short of room to maker different configurations which make this a very versatile hive.
Thanks again to Dean, Matt and the team.
