I have more than 100+ hives and other equipment for sale as I have totally changed over to Langstroths this year. They are mainly Nationals with a small number of Commercials, 14 x 12's and Smiths. I would like to sell as complete hives to include Floor, Brood box, Crown board, two, three or even four supers (all castellated) and a roof. They are used but in good condition and have been treated with Cuprinol this year.
There will be NO frames or drawn wax with these hives.

Please PM me for contact details to negotiate price.

Hives for sale

Just to keep you up to date, as they are selling very fast. So if you are thinking of waiting until Spring you may be out of luck.
Only four 14 x 12's left, Smiths are going well as I can offer more supers with this hive. How about an early Christmas present!!

Regards Mike

Quite a few Smiths going up to the Bedford area and some to Cheshire is that still South. Nationals are still the most popular, some what suprised that I still have 15 Commercials and four 14 x 12's left as I always liked the bigger frame for easier swarm control.

Hi just a quick update
Commercials going well now that Cristmas is well and truly done. I guess bekeeping classes are under way as lots of enquiries from new beginners, thats great to see the interest. I still have some Nationals if anyone is interested, a few Smiths and Commercials and 2x14"x12"'s. I do have a lot of odd Smith gear left, over 100 supers, 25 -30 new metal roofs, loads of crownboards and Q excluders and 20ish wooden top feeders that I wouls like to see go as a job lot to someone who would make good use of them

Regards Mike

I’m trying to get started and need to get a pair of commercial hives for next year.
I completed a beginner’s course and have somewhere to put them.
Can you confirm if you have two complete hives for sale and what is your best price?
Thanks Tom

hi mike.

if you dont mind me asking, how did the change over go? we have been thinkin about changing all our hives to langstroth, but we are a bit worried that we will lose out on our honey crop.
