In a top-bar hive, the top bars are the roof of the hive and the foundation upon which the bees build their combs. When the sides are sloped, this is referred to as a Kenyan Hive. The top-bar hive easily accommodates organic requirements and can be created from wildcrafted materials such as willow or bamboo. Overall, the combs are stronger and less likely to break and collapse when they are full of honey.
Milled in Portland, Oregon and offered in FSC® certified, sustainable kiln-dried Western Red Cedar, this Kenyan Hive includes a Comb Cut roof, quilt box, two boxes, and a stand. Assembly required.
