Our hive starter kits make starting your hive simple. Fully assembled and complete with everything you need to get your colony going, our kits are available for National, WBC and Poly hives. We know everything there is to know about keeping bees, so expect a high quality kit, with all the essential items to get you started.
Poly hives are lighter and cheaper than wooden choices, so they’re often popular with beginners. By nature, they also provide fantastic insulation for your colony, so they will keep them warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer.

Leather gloves. Choose from size 7 to 12
