WHAT HIVE SHOULD I PURCHASE?
A splittable Hive or a Honey Pot Hive?
If you are interested in honey harvesting than the honey pot hive is for you. It has a great little collection unit which makes harvesting much easier, quicker and ultimately safer for the bees.
However if honey harvesting isn't your primary goal, I would recommend sticking with a spliattble hive. After 12 months of ownership, you can split you hive into two, and you can continue this process every year or so growing your bees as much as you would like.
If you don't desire to split your hive, the good thing is that they will be perfectly fine. Stingless bees make such a great little pet as they require almost zero maintenance. The only requirements are that they are placed in full shade all year round and that they flight path is kept free of any obstructions such as branches, spider webs etc.
All my hives come with an informational flyer and a *12 month warranty.
Commercial quantities of hives are available for crop growers. Native bees are particularly beneficial for Mangoes, Avocados, Watermelons, Blueberries, Lychees, Macadamias.
