This communal shelter holds 12 hives on two shelves protected by a sheet metal roof. it is sold in a flat un-assembled form. it is easily transported and assembled on location. The legs are 4 Y-pickets driven into the ground and the shelves and roof sections secured by tightening the fasteners, everything included.
The shelter is designed to grow hive numbers over time by duplicating colonies - we do not recommend installing 12 hives at once as they will fight. Start with 4 well spaced and facing different directions across the stand, then split these when ready and keep the daughters next to them.
Lead time involved as communal stand is made to order. Please contact us for an estimate,
