Warre Hive

75   |  


Milled in Portland, Oregon and offered in FSC certified, sustainable kiln-dried Western Red Cedar or Sugar Pine, our Warre hives include two boxes to get you started. Our Warre hive kits feature 7/8" thick Western Red Cedar or 1" thick Sugar Pine, rabbet joints, pre-drilled holes and stainless steel screws for added strength and longevity. Sloped handles allow for improved rain run off and better grip when lifting. The precision milled, one piece top bars are unattached for compliance with most state and local beekeeping laws. Ships free to the contiguous 48 states—international shipping available.

Warre boxes measure 13 3/4" wide by 13 3/4" long by 8 1/4" deep. Boxes are made from 7/8-inch thick Western Red Cedar or 1-inch thick Sugar Pine.
