    I wish I could give this 5 stars but I'm still waiting for the order placed in March. I've tried several times to get an accurate ship date, but I have yet to hear back.

    Top bar hive

    Overall th construction of the hive was easy and straightforward. There was an issue with the stand where the cutout for the horizontal support piece was not cut to the proper width. I have some basic woodworking skills so I was able to fix it myself, but it could have been a problem for others without the tools or knowledge.

    First time buyer

    Love the finished product but took some effort to assemble. Was missing a piece when arrived, customer service was excellent and piece arrived the next day. First try at beekeeping, so far the bees seem to like their new home.
