We carry the large volume, stainless steel smoker. The large canister is designed to provide hours of smoke without relighting.
We offer unassembled or fully assembled wooden boxes. 2500Lb Non-toxic glue is applied to the rabbet joints, which are then securely fastened with screws. This method has proven to extend the life of the unit.
Our inner lid is reversible, to block drafts for winter and has enough clearance to allow the beekeeper to apply pollen substitute patties directly on the frames. We use a combination of non-toxic 2500lb glue and staples to acheive one of the most durable inner covers in the industry.
Durable 5/8” plywood contruction for the floor of hive, with 2x4's screwed below. This eliminates warping, and gives the beekeeper the option of screwing the hive bottom down .
Get years of use from our "Military Grade" premium hive lids. The metal edges are overlapped at the corners, then screwed down securely. This helps to keep the elements out and the bees dry.(To be used with the inner cover a.k.a crown board).
Our personal favourite. This design has the most leverage to help with those stubborn, waxed-in frames; stainless steel design for years of use.
We use and recommend Mann Lake PF 117 pre-waxed frames. Not only are they the most economical, but the durability is second to none.
These feeders replace 2 frames in the hive, and hold 2 gallons (8 litres) of sugar water. The abundance of actificial nectar is great for getting new hives established or loading existings ones up for winter. A wooden stick floats inside, on the sugar water, minimizing bee losses.
