    Hive World's 6 litre Frame Feeder with Ladders and Cap is the professional way to feed your bees.

    This quality plastic feeder sits inside the hive so lessens the likelihood of robbing. It is easy to fill and holds up to 6 litres of sugar syrup. The cap and ladders are easily removed for cleaning and are sealed to prevent the bees making burr comb in the feeder or the queen laying brood inside.

    The textured walls give the option of using this feeder without the cap and ladders. The feeder measures 90mm x 230mm deep.

    Apibox Maxi is an easy-to-use system for preparing honeycomb for sale.  It uses a 35mm wide basswood frame (wide enough to hold two rows of containers), and special PET food grade recyclable plastic boxes that fit neatly in your super either with your regular frames or as a whole super load.

    When the boxes are filled out all you need to do is simply close the lid on each packet and you have 24 attractively presented packs of comb honey for sale.  The sections hold up to 125g of comb honey in each.  We also supply the replacement packs of 24 boxes to use in your frame next time.

    The usual precautions for producing comb honey remain:

    • Do not harvest comb after the end of December in tutin areas.
    • Always ensure the honey is tested before sale.
    • To produce the best quality comb honey you must insert your boxes right at the peak of the honey flow so the bees fill out the comb quickly.

    See our blog on comb honey for more information - https://www.hiveworld.co.nz/comb-honey-production/

    Hive World's  40 mm deep 8-way assembled escape board allows the bees to exit the super before harvesting.

    This proven method does not require chemical intervention.

    Place underneath the super to be extracted and return between 2 and 24 hours to remove the super without the bees.Do not leave too much longer or the bees will tend to find their way back!

    When harvesting from hives with very strong colonies and the honey flow is still in progress, it is necessary to provide a super with empty combs on top of the brood nest below the harvest board, to accommodate the bees coming down.  It is also essential to ensure that the supers being emptied are absolutely bee-tight to prevent robbing once they are empty of bees.
