Polystyrene hives are undoubtedly more and more popular. Low weight and small dimensions, compared to wooden hives, make them particularly useful in migratory apiaries, but they are also useful in stationary beehives, including amateur ones.
They are easy to clean, durable and are a premium European made product. High thermal insulation properties of polystyrene ensure excellent thermal conditions, which positively influences the rapid spring development of a bee colony kept in such a hive. Our hives are equipped with additional elements that facilitate the performance of many beekeeping works and the acquisition of additional bee products.
Advantages of a polystyrene beehive:
excellent insulating properties
resistance to moisture
the lightness of the elements, which facilitates feeding, honey harvesting and colony inspections
long life, associated with resistance to weather conditions – we highly recommend painting these using water based UV resistant paint
strong and durable structure
eco-friendliness (no risk to the environment in production, recycling of waste)
- compatibility of all components
