Hive sales and services

Access Bee care for a practical ‘how to’ care for your Australian native stingless bee hive (it’s only two pages).

Hives
We provide well established boxed hives with honey supers. The boxes are made of quality cypress wood up to 40ml thick, which ensures good insulation whether it is hot or cold. A double roof is attached for extra insulation.

We also supply hives in logs, as nature provided them (pictured below right), and in carved logs with honey supers   to Matthew’s  design (such as the one pictured below left), or to your own design.

  • Splitting hives – if you have an existing box we can teach you how to split it
