What some of our customers say about our hives

I’ve used this observation hive for two years now and it has proved to be a reliable and useful tool. I particularly like some of the design features such as the locking pins and the cover slides that make using the hive with members of the public safe for the people and less stressful for the bees.

Another excellent feature is the storage box that comes with the hive – I no longer have to worry about the glass getting broken – it makes storage safe and easy.

I have used the hive on many occasions, and some of the best times were with children where they could get really up close! You have made a real quality item with lots of attention paid to detail. I would recommend it to anyone looking at buying an observation hive.
