Jumbo (14x12) National hive, beginners kit

Starting at: £235.00

SUPERS: Due to an unforseen manufacturing delay combined with unusually large orders early in the season, we have run out of supers.  We are expecting a delivery in the first week of July.

 

Any hive orders placed will be dispatched as usual within a few days, the supers will be sent out as soon as they become available.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

This is the beginners kit recommended by the beekeepers at Bee Hive Supplies.  The larger jumbo or 14x12 brood box is better suited to the more vigorous hybrid bee common in the UK, it allows quicker, easier and less intrusive inspections than using the brood and a half system, and is more cost effective.

 

 

The kit includes a jumbo (14x12) hive comprising: roof, open mesh floor, jumbo (14x12) brood box, plastic queen excluder, 11 hoffman self spacing frames and foundation per lift, hive strap, varroa tray, entrance block and inner cover.  With a high quality one piece cotton coverall with integral veil, rubber beekeeping gloves and wrist gauntlets, a stainless steel J-tool, a stainless steel smoker and a bag of smoker fuel, a 2.5 litre rapid feeder and "The Complete Step-by-Step Book of Beekeeping" by David Cramp.

For beginners kits we recommend a minimum of 1 super with the hive.

 

Our very thick insulated gabled roof provides 100mm/4" of solid insulation in the centre keeping your bees warm even in the coldest of conditions, and keeping the temperature constant throughout the summer. Our woven stainless steel open mesh floor is 150mm/6" thick providing excellent insulation and in the majority of cases does not need a hive stand.  The roof and floor combined with a minimum of 35mm/1.5" thick solid polystyrene walls will keep your bees dry and snug in the harshest of conditions.

 

The supers are supplied including 11 Hoffman spaced frames and foundation.
