The kit also contains the BBKAs guide to beekeeping, which was published in August 2012, a leaflet entitled ldquoGetting Started with Beesrdquo, and full instructions for using and caring for the hive.Here are a few key benefits of using polystyrene hives, instead of traditional wood hives.Polystyrene hives provide much better insulation than wooden hives, keeping the bees warm and dry in winter and cool in the summer. Polystyrene hives are easy and quick to assemble. Polystyrene hives are completely waterproof. However, they do need to be painted with a water masonry paint in order to ensure that the hives remain durable and long lasting. Polystyrene does not rot. Therefore, the hives are much easier to clean. Polystyrene hives are cheaper than wooden hives. Polystyrene hives are lighter than wooden hives although not by as much as you would expect, and are easily moveable.High density polystyrene now dominates the market as the construction material for bee hives in many parts of Europe. There are tens of thousands of polystyrene hives in use, and the British beekeeper can rest assured that the polystyrene hive is a high quality product that works.These polystyrene hives have successfully been used for a bee farming operation with 3,000 colonies in Finland, where temperatures range from below 35oC in winter to 35oC in summer. These beehives are designed to have a lifespan of over 30 years, and can be easily cleaned and sterilised to ensure healthy bees. High density polystyrene is a proven, durable, recyclable and eminently suitable materiel for bee hives.Click on the Gallery tab above for more product imagesBeekeeping in a Box Components1 Polystyrene Hive Roof1 Polystyrene Hive Floor4 Polystyrene Medium Depth Long Side for Honey Supers4 Polystyrene Medium Depth Short Side for Honey Supers2 Polystyrene Full Depth Long Side for Brood Chamber2 Polystyrene Full Depth Short Side for Brood Chamber6 Plastic Upper Edge6 Platic Lower Edge1 Inner Hive Cover30 Top Bar for Wooden Frames60 Bottom Bar for Wooden Frames20 Full Depth Long Side Bar for Wooden Brood Frames40 Short Sides Shallow for Wooden Honey Super Frames1 Wired Deep Foundation Pack of 102 Wired Shallow Foundation Pack of 101 Queen Excluder1 Varroa Tray1 Varroa Mesh1 Hive Entrance Reducer1 Single Screw Pack1 3m Strap1 Full width Rapid Feeder body1 Inner Hive Cover for Feeder1 Stainless Steel Smoker with Insert and Guard1 Beekeeping Suit and Rubber Gloves Voucher1 British Steel Hive Tool1 Hive Assembly and Care Instructions1 Getting Started with Bees Leaflet1 The BBKA Guide to BeekeepingnbspThis Bee Hive Box system is especially made with a hardened eps polystyrene density over 100kgm3.Please allow upto 7 days for delivery
