Full National Cedar Starter Kit
National Cedar Beehive
Made from cedar timber which is an anti-decay material due to a chemical substance that is found in cedar timber. It serves as a natural fungicide thereby preventing the wood from rotting which is still prevalent in the timber decades after it has been cut.
Made from locally sourced Thuja Plicata ( cedar) timber to withstand every climate.
Our boxes are hand-crafted, screwed, and glued together.
The hives have integrated mesh floors for ventilation and easy varroa inspection.
They are also fully assembled and ready to be stocked with bees.
All hives are double-coated with Liberon bee-friendly oil for full weather resistance.
