Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What are the hives made from?

A. These bee hives are made from hand selected pieces of pine.   

Q. What do you recommend using to preserve the hive?

A. I use various preservatives on my hives. On some I use a linseed oil and beeswax mixture; on others I use a natural, linseed oil based, paint. For the roofs I use exterior gloss as it provides excellent waterproofing - this is not a problem as the bees are not living in the roof!
