AS A BEEKEEPER THIS BOOK WILL CHANGE YOUR IDEAS AND MAKE YOU CHECK YOUR

METHODS AND THE HIVE SYSTEM YOU USE.

FOLLOWING TEXT BY STEPHEN GREENAWAY OWNER OF BEENUCS.

I have been beekeeping for a few years , using National Hives, the design of the BEENUCS evolved

through the need to produce colony splits, queen rearing and the collection of swarms.

The sliding front entrance solved many simple problems when moving and handling bees, so when I read

Tim's book and looked closely at his method and it all clicked into place.

I have been experimenting with foundation less frames, letting the bees build the comb they want, but still

having the ability to check frames, extract honey and return the frames to the colony.

NOW as all the frames in a ROSE HIVE are the same size it made sense to combine the two systems.

SO

We are offering  a ONE SIZE HIVE SYSTEM  (OSH)

It is combatable with National and Rose Hive Equipment. The roof/lid will fit, the floor is the same size, crown board is thinner

to allow for moisture evaporation, but would fit onto a National hive.

We have made a few changes, the side lifting slots are square to allow for easier lifting from top and bottom, and are fitting metal frame support runners.

 

OSH 1

ONE SIZE HIVE WITH BEES AND STANDARD FRAMES.

We have also designed a special LOW LEVEL STAND, when the colony builds up to a 7 box high , this has the potential

of producing 40 kilo's of honey per box, without being greedy and leaving the bees food for winter, a honey harvest of

100 kilo's from that colony would not be out of the question.

So a conventional stand will not take this weight, so we designed a floor stand to do the job.
