About this deal

Its insulation properties also makes it ideal for beehives as less bees are required to maintain the heat required for effective brood rearing, helps improve overwintering successes and giving you an earlier spring buildup.

obviously gives more space for brooding in the summer and this therefore is a big advantage if you have a very productive colony. I’ve had a few courier issues with damaged items - yet Abelo have always sorted them promptly and to my satisfaction every time. We work very closing with the NBU (National Bee Unit) and APHA (Animal and Plant Agency) to guarantee you disease free bees that are a pleasure to handle.

Our craftsmen take huge pride in the quality of all our products and everything has to meet their exacting standards. I found (and more importantly so did one of my colonies) the space on a single standard not enough for both the early year population explosion and storing food for over wintering. I'm wondering if life might be easier to switch from double brood to 14x12 because of the reduced work when inspecting and I'm not really completely convinced that my colonies really need the volume of a double brood box. I wouldn't put the national brood over the 14x12 and QE though as there is a good chance they will then use it as a super and start filling it with nectar, which is ok if you want to use it as a super.

We are a team of passionate beekeepers supplying beginner beekeepers and fellow bee farmers across the nation.The 14 x 12 eke is a simple device which fits on top of a National brood box to provide space for 12″ high frames (see below).

Bees will generally build comb where you don't want it - under the deep frames - and you still have to get rid of them at some time which is why I would prefer to get the job done early as a Baily comb exchange rather than have shallower frames in the hive for some time. This simple yet effective concept allows beekeepers to easily create self-sustaining mating nucs that are from a standardised national frame design. Then you need to make sure any extractor can take that size of frame, they will cost a bit more, but there are some advantages.but they are smaller frames so you get more brood on a 14 x 12 frame if you are going to make up Nucs from splitting colonies ? Each hive component is made from a very high density material, 120g/litre - up to 4 times stronger than the poly used for packaging. The colony will re-orientate to the new entrance and will concentrate their efforts in the 14 x 12 box.
