Class of hives
We offer the Langstroth Hive: Langstroth hive with a queen excluder, two-step top bar ( total of 26 topbars), aluminum roof, aluminum base, two inspecting windows, one honey super box, one brood chamber with a landing base. It is almost similar to the Tanzanian Beehive just that it is mostly imported and not made locally.
- It can do an average of 35 to 50litres (depending on the Bee Colony that produces the honey and the location of the farm)
- These hives are used universally because they can be managed to produce the maximum crop of honey.
- Honey can be extracted from the combs which can be returned to the bees for reuse.
- Hives can be increased in size to accommodate large colonies of bees for maximum production.
- The hives are compact enough to allow easy transport to different areas.
- Very many books and publications covering the use and management of these hives are available.
The Tanzanian Hives: The Tanzanian Beehive is an artificial model for the Langstroth Beehive and is around 50cm in height and 50cm in width because it is double-stepped
The Kenyan Hives: Kenya hive with just a step bar, aluminum roof and, one brood chamber. It has a height of 30cm and a width of 52cm.
- These hives can easily be constructed even by village carpenters without woodworking machines.
- There is only one measurement of importance i.e. the width of the top bars.
- The sizes of the combs are uniform, and manipulations involving the movement of combs from one place in the hive to another are easy.
- Combs and top-bars can be moved from one place to another in the hive so that only some combs are used for brood rearing, while other combs are used solely for honey storage.
- Examinations to check the health and wellbeing of the bees are quick and easy.
- Old brood combs (darkened and with smaller worker cells) can be removed easily.
- It is easy to keep the bees under control because, unlike with frame hives, it is not necessary to completely open the top of the hive for examinations.
- There is no need to purchase any extra hive parts. Costly queen excluders are
- The bees readily build new combs to replace those removed by the beekeeper who can recover the beeswax from the honey-combs and from old combs.
