The b-box comes in 3 boxes with pieces that need to be assembled.
Assembly is very simple, since we also provide a step by step video tutorial that explains how to put the b-box together. Since the parts are made out of wood, you should treat the material appropriately. We suggest using a water based sealer that has the least chemicals to not harm the bees – remember that it’s going to be a permanent house for your new guests!
Once you have protected the hive with a sealer, you can paint the hive whatever color you like! Check out the different colored hives at the bottom of the page.
After you’ve done this, you will have to decide where to place the hive and find a beekeeper who can provide you with a swarm of bees.
Bees usually come on 4-5 frames but if the colony is a bit bigger, that’s also okay. The b-box can fit up to 10 Dadant or Langstroth frames.
To instal the bees is quite simple but it must be done wearing proper beekeeping clothing, since you will have to come into direct contact with the bees. If you have some knowledge of beekeeping, you can install it independently otherwise we recommend taking a small beekeeping course or relying on a beekeeper to help you out.
When it comes to the production of honey, it varies with the surrounding environment and the season. Normally you can harvest 20-30kg of honey per season, but if the conditions are favorable, the bees can produce up to 150 kg! It also depends on the size of your colony.
