There is only one manufacturer that I know of, of a standard National Brood box in poly and that is Swienty.

I am awaiting an email from them as to who is supplying them.

Likewise Pete. I'd really like to get my hands on some standard National poly brood boxes....well, lots and lots of them actually!

A PM would be appreciated if you manage to dig anything up.....

Surely it's still Wynne Jones? Swienty pointed me their way when I enquired about the deletion of nationals from their website despite them being in the 2009 catalogue. Wynne Jones were out of stock last autumn and didn't know if they were going to carry them again but they confirmed by email a couple of months ago that they were now carrying stock and I enquired at their stall at Stoneleigh and they said they had brought some there for customers who had ordered in advance.

Wynne quoted me this in March, posting to N. Ireland

The hive is bottom bee space and 45mm thick polystyrene.=£90.52
The carriage would be £14.00

Ouch cheaper to buy a poly lang and modify your frames.

I presume that that price included a floor and roof as well as brood box?

Pretty sure that includes omf floor, brood box, 2 supers and roof.

I'm very happy with the one I bought from them -wanted to compare poly vs cedar especially as I'm keeping at altitude (1100 ft) and was interested benefit of increase insulation and reduced weight (saving my back!)
