Hives and Hive Parts
The most popular hive in the UK.
The Commercial hive has a larger brood box than the National hive and this makes it a popular choice in Essex and other areas where oilseed rape is grown and colonies build up quickly in the spring.
Deep National Hive
This hive is almost the same as a National hive, but with a deeper brood box. Like the Commercial hive, above, it is a popular choice in areas where colonies build up quickly in the spring.
This traditional, double walled hive is often seen painted white and placed on the garden lawn.
This is the most widely used hive in the world.
This single-walled hive is almost unique to Scottish beekeeping.
An American style hive.
