Are you really sure you want a Beehaus ?... Most of them I have seen end up as storage containers for spare kit .... there are better designs .... Even the original Dartington that t was based on is better than the Beehaus.Hi All,
Does anyone know of any beehaus for sale?
We're in the SW.
Thanks in advance.
Nahhh ....Sometimes you have to tell it like it is ... we used to have a member on here - Tremyfro - who was in the process of cornering the market for them ... but as I recall, she had to add insulation to the cavities and generally mess about with them before using them. They make a good beer cooler as well ...and your beer stock would be safe ~ who's going to look for a tinny in a beehive ?Lol I at least was trying to be subtle
They come up regularly (which tells you something ?) but they do sell (which may tell you something else ?) depending on the bits that go with them for between £150 and £350 .... seems like a lot to me but at nearly £500+ for a new one I suppose they are a bargain if they float your boat ?There was couple on eBay last week, one in Sevenoaks and two in Chichester, may have gone now.
When you posted I was going to say, “be nice, everybody” but I didn’t. Looks like I didn’t need to. Well done. You stick to your guns and if you want a Beehaus I hope you find one.Hi, thanks for the for sale links
To everyone else, wow! Talk about ask 3 beekeepers a question you’ll get 5 answers!
If you look at my post, which is in the for sale/wanted section, not the needing advice section, you’ll find I didn’t ask for opinions, subtle or otherwise on the beehaus and/or its marine capabilities (next to none one assumes due to the mesh floor but you do you).
I sport a number of 14x12 hives of different styles and I love them all. They all have pros and cons and I think most folk like what they like and that’s how it should be. I’m not the supreme knowledge on beekeeping and so I’m not about to start dissing any particular hive, design or preferences other beeks might have.
Enjoy your beehives, happy beeking/sailing/beer drinking.
Thanks! Looks like I might have found at good second hand one that I'll go see on the weekend.When you posted I was going to say, “be nice, everybody” but I didn’t. Looks like I didn’t need to. Well done. You stick to your guns and if you want a Beehaus I hope you find one.
By the way, if you have money to spare Hyde Hives do long hives that are a work of art.
