Top Bars

47   |  

Our bundles of 10 top bars are precision milled from kiln dried sugar pine at our mill in Portland, Oregon. They feature a wedge comb guide to maximize straight comb attachment. The bars measure 17 3/8" long x 1 3/8" wide x 1" tall (the wedge is 14 3/4" long), and are conveniently interchangeable with the bars within any Chandler-style horizontal top bar hives. These are the same bars we use in our own top bar hives at Bee Thinking!

"Our bars are industry leading! Precision milled, one-piece design starting with a prominent ridge for bees to build natural, straight comb, flanked by to shoulders to create natural bee space when racked together. No other bar is as clean, and easy to use." - Cameron, Sales and Customer Service Manager

Sold in bundles of 10.

Its a beautiful top bar.

Its a beautiful top bar. My bees survived last winter and I split them into 3 hives. Wonderful. The corks in the holes over winter worked OK, but they have now propolized some of the hole so hard to get the cork in. better would be some kind of swing-down or sliding cover.

Sugar Pine is our value wood option. Beautiful, strong, takes paint or sealant well, and is more stable and lighter than more common ponderosa pine.

Western Red Cedar is our premium wood option. It is rot resistant, dimensionally stable, insulates well, and doesn't require painting or sealing.

All of our wood is sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
