MADE IN THE U.S.A.
solve many issues for those who need to winter over their hives. We
use these boxes on every hive we have on our farm and so do thousands
of other beekeepers, with great success.
Letting your bees
cluster in the hive like normal is very inefficient. The bees mash
between each frame trying to cluster as much as they can to keep
warm, but the whole hive doesn't have a chance to cluster together to
stay warm. These winter boxes help the entire hive cluster in one
large ball making them MUCH more efficient at keeping warm. Unlike
just adding another medium to allow them to cluster, our winter boxes
allow for moisture wicking insulation on either side of them and
allows for your sugar board or feeder to encourage them to cluster in
the best spot in the hive.
These boxes allow for insulation to
be put on the two compartments on the outside and your candy board or
feeder in the middle compartment. The screen on the outer two
insulation areas is small enough to not let the bees pass through (or
your insulation like sawdust or wood chips), but large enough to let
air keep flowing. The middle compartment screen is large enough to
let the bees easily travel though, without them even scraping their
This center compartment allows your sugar board or
feeder to sit on the screen and allows the bees to use the screen to
hang on to as they cluster in the middle to stay warm and feed,
surrounded by moisture wicking insulation on both sides of them.
Give your bees a nice warm and cozy
spot to spend their winter this year! HERE is a video if you want to know more.
**Please note, the box in the pictures is painted yellow. Your box will not come painted, so slap a fresh coat on paint on it in any color you like!
