Australian Native Stingless Beehive - Splittable Hive
This Australian Native Stingless Beehive is perfect for backyards, apartments, schools, and workplaces. It is a useful educational tool, contains roughly 5000 excellent pollinators (which will double in a year), is splittable, and is also aesthetically pleasing.
The hive box is hand-made out of a Bamboo PVC Composite which is weather resistant, and a quality insulator. It features an entrance, and a ventilation hole. To minimise the risk of pests, the openings are bent, which discourages most natural enemies.
Every 1-2 years this hive can be split to create 2 hives.
Australian Native Stingless Beehive - Honey Pot Hive
This ingenious hive includes all of the features of the Splittable Hive, as well as an efficient honey collector. After you have had your hive for a year, you can begin collecting a small jar of honey every 3-6 weeks.
The process is simple, quick, and safer for the bees than other methods. If you ever need any help, feel free to send us an email or private message on our social media.
This hive can also be split every 1-2 years.
Empty Hive Boxes
We provide a range of empty hive boxes that are perfect for adding onto existing hives, splitting and rescues.
