BENEFITS OF HIGH DENSITY POLYHIVES

High density POLYHIVES are rapidly gaining popularity due to their outstanding benefits over traditional wooden hives.

*Recent research shows that modern single thickness wooden hives are making bees more prone to disease and starvation. Modern single walled wooden beehives of 1 inch (25mm) thickness or less were designed for economy during times of wood shortage primarily during the second world war.

POLYHIVES offer bees much improved thermal insulation closer to what they would find in their natural habitat and would typically survive cold weather in a much stronger condition.
