Description

The BeeBox beehive system is the result of 40 years of beekeeping and development experience on the biggest beekeeping operation in Scandinavia. They have been tested in harsh environments facing ± 50°C in Northern Europe, arctic Russia, Australia and New Zealand.
The beehives are made of food grade, extra hardened, expanded polystyrene (EPS) with a density of over 100 kg/m³.

In proper use, the hives will easily last several decades. In order to save space during transport, the boxes are supplied unassembled.

Step-up in hive technology

The material (6 times the thermal/insulation efficiency of wood) the precision manufacturing and compatibility (inner dimensions, not the outer) with the dimensions of a Langstroth hive, including FlowHive supers, make these the long-awaited step-up if winter insulation or summer heat are a challenge. I am gradually replacing deteriorating wood boxes with these and so far I am very happy with them. Two pieces of advice - three coats of (water-based) paint because bees and ants love eating polystyrene, and have a good supply of food-grade acrylic epoxy resin on hand. After painting, coat the rims to provide a glass-like surface where the boxes interface otherwise they tend to stick and hive tools are no friend of polystyrene. Also the boxes will get dinted and the resin is an excellent repair medium.

Hi,
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Paradise Honey 9 Frame Ideal Hive Box Super Body. We're glad to hear that you are enjoying the step-up in hive technology and that the material and precision manufacturing have met your expectations.
We found it interesting that you are coating your hive with three coats of water based paint where we totally agree wiith this aproach. We do the same. In addition we tend to also paint the inside with a couple of coats too. This tends to reduce the bees and ant nibbling as you highlited.
We love your idea of coating with an epoxy coating and can totally see the benifits of this. We will try this out so thank you for your tip.
Many regards,
Buzzbee Team
