A single hive set is the basic start up needed to have bees. 1 brood bottom box.
It is important to realise that you should not run your hive in a single hive all during spring. They need more room as they expand and grow. This means for you, you will need another 2 honey boxes for when they have mass honey being produced. It will eventually become a triple hive.
We run hives in the triple hives as the bottom box is there for your queen and her to lay eggs in and make the hive stronger. The 2 honey supers provide plenty of room when mass of honey is being produced, keeping them busy.
If you are just starting out, this kit will provide a start for bees to start expanding and growing.
For best life out of timber, paint on inside and out with 2 coats.
Put frames in and an excluder on, and your bees are ready to be put in.
This set contains:
1 x lid
