Warre Hive Box With Window.
Please note there is no tax on all orders.
Warre Hive Box:
-Made from 1" thick white pine.
-Joints are rebated, glued, and screwed for superior strength, dimensional stability and longevity.
-Includes 8 single piece top bars with comb guide made from white pine.
-Our unique milled in notches allow you to accurately space the top bars with out the need to nail them in place.
-Beveled handles for water runoff.
-Hive boxes with window include a removable door that hides a 1/8" plexiglass window. Window boxes are recommended for beginner bee keepers as they allow you to regularly inspect the hive without taking it apart and disturbing the bees.
-Available both assembled and unassembled.
-Assembled boxes come completely assembled and trued. Handles are removed however for shipping (requires #2 robertson (square) screwdriver).
-Unassembled boxes are the more economical option. They come complete with all required parts and screws. We even include the wood glue (excluding the winter season as the glue cannot freeze). Assembly instruction are available on our website. A paper copy is not provide unless requested as we try to stay green wherever possible.
For 2019 we have redesigned our window boxes based on research and feedback. Windows are great for beekeepers to keep tabs on the progress of a colony, but bees are not a big fan. Bees as a general rule do not like plastic (window material), they do not like any light getting in the hive (gaps around shutter doors) and the reduced insulation value because of the window is not helpful in winter. For these reasons we have reduced the size of the window and changed the shutter to an over lapping flange style to reduce light penetration into the hive and provide a better weather seal. The shutter handle has been replaced by 2 finger holes and the shutter latch has been made thinner. The lower profile makes it easier to wrap the hive for winter (once box handles are removed). Lastly, assembly is a little easier and the boxes are stronger. We hope you like the changes as much as we do!
